Description

The 4th annual Celebrating Young and Strong event will benefit the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers’ Young and Strong Program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. This event will be a wonderfully joyful night; celebrating survivorship, recognizing the courageous women still battling breast cancer every day, and honoring those we’ve lost to the disease.

Each year in the United States, more than 12,000 women under age 40 are diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. Many of these women struggle with feeling the pressure to balance career and relationships, have concerns about fertility, or are already raising a family—and a diagnosis of breast cancer adds to these stressors. Recognizing these different and challenging issues, Ann Partridge, MD, MPH, Director, Young and Strong, The Program for Young Women with Breast Cancer, began to focus her research on this population. Founded in 2005, the program has provided a formidable support system for more than 3,000 young women since its inception. The mission of Young and Strong is twofold: to enhance care and education for patients and their families, as well as to advance the understanding of the biology of breast cancer and the experience of the disease for younger women through ongoing research.

Proceeds from this event to directly to Young and Strong and have a direct impact on patient care. By supporting this program, it helps to ensure all young women with breast cancer receive comprehensive, cutting edge care and providing specialized support throughout their journey. We thank you in advance for your support and generosity!
