WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

 

 

 

 

 

Founded in 2005, Young and Strong, the Program for Young Women with Breast Cancer is specially designed to meet the unique needs of young women with breast cancer. A cancer diagnosis is life-altering for most people, and we recognize that young women with breast cancer often face other challenges such as:

 

 

 

  • Dealing with concerns about future fertility
  •  

     

  • Considering genetic risks in treatment and prevention decisions
  •  

     

  • Parenting young children
  •  

     

  • Finishing school
  •  

     

  • Managing a career
  •  

     

  • Building relationships
  •  

     

     

    ​Young and Strong exists to guide young women through this turbulent time, offering comprehensive care, support, and programs. This innovative program seeks to directly improve education and support for young women with breast cancer and the providers who care for them at Dana-Farber and its satellites.​

    Donations to Young and Strong support our mission of meeting the unique needs of young women through services and support such as:

     

     

     

  • Genetic testing and counseling
  •  

     

  • Fertility and reproductive services
  •  

     

  • Nutrition services
  •  

     

  • Sexual health program
  •  

     

  • Psychological support
  •  

     

  • EMBRACing Young and Strong
    A dedicated support program for young women living with metastatic breast cancer
  •  

     

  • Adult Survivorship Program
    Expertise and support for physical and psychological challenges after treatment
  •  

     


    Thank you for your investment in the care of young women with breast cancer; we greatly appreciate your support and can't wait to walk (virtually) with you!
