BCRC Young Survivors Meetup Group
Apr 9 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Breast Cancer Resource Center’s meetup groups gather throughout the year and empower those diagnosed with breast cancer. We believe no one should face breast cancer alone. Our groups are a safe and comfortable place to share, be uplifted, exchange ideas, get informed, gain daily strength, explore handling different situations, embrace one another, and move forward in your personal journey.

Our Young Survivors meetup group is an ongoing monthly peer-facilitated support group addressing the unique concerns of women under the age of 40 who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Young women at any stage of their breast cancer journey are welcome to attend. Whether you have just been diagnosed, are still undergoing treatment or are several years out, join us to connect with other young women who have faced breast cancer.

Registration is required.
