What inspires you in your work to support, empower or educate young women affected by breast cancer?
I am inspired by the focus, dedication and resolve of YSC and its members over the last 20 years. As a result, I have witnessed countless women, families and friends find strength and purpose through advocacy and education that has had real, lasting and meaningful results in the fight against breast cancer.
What about your work for young women affected by breast cancer makes you most proud?
I am most proud of Sheppard Mullin’s legal support and dedication over many years across YSC’s varied and diverse business activities and events, which has helped the organization grow from a small band of dedicated women when it was founded in 1998 to a national organization with top-tier sponsors and broad membership appeal today.
What are your hopes for the future, with regard to YSC and young breast cancer survivors?
My hope is that YSC will continue to provide support, education and hope for the many young women that are affected by breast cancer until a cure is found!
What is your message for YSC on its 20th anniversary?
DON’T – EVER – GIVE – UP!!
About YSC and Game Changers
Young Survival Coalition was founded in 1998 by young women diagnosed with breast cancer under age 35.
YSC is made up of people: survivors, co-survivors, volunteers, donors, healthcare providers. Our strength comes from our community. So in our 20th year, we will honor our roots — the people who have helped build YSC into what it is today — and also look forward, recognizing those in our community who are changing the future of breast cancer in young women.
We are highlighting these individuals as Game Changers throughout 2018 and sharing their stories with the world to thank them for their contributions to our community.
