Frequently Asked Questions
Attending the YSC Virtual Symposium
Who attends the YSC Virtual Symposium?
I attended the YSC Summit already. Why should I register for this?
YSC is committed to creating programs to meet the different needs of young adults after they are diagnosed with breast cancer. While the YSC Summit is a three-day event that welcomes almost 600 attendees, the YSC Virtual Symposium offers an opportunity to learn and connect with others who are just like you from the comfort of your own home!
The focus of the YSC Virtual Symposium is also very specific, in that it explores a much more personal side to your own journey after a breast cancer diagnosis, and it will give you the resources to rejuvenate and plan the most fulfilling life for YOU.
Who is a co-survivor?
Co-survivors, often called “caregivers,” are those individuals who provide close support to a young adult during their breast cancer experience. These can include spouses, partners, significant others, parents, siblings and friends.
What time does the YSC Virtual Symposium begin and end?
The YSC Virtual Symposium workshops and meetups will be offered from November 11-16, 2019. Check the schedule for a more detailed breakdown of timing and when the different workshops and meetups will take place.

What can I expect at the YSC Virtual Symposium?
The YSC Virtual Symposium is designed to be a week filled with workshops and meetups that focuses on you, your co-survivor and exploring your best life after a breast cancer diagnosis. We’ve included topics that speak to the specific experiences of young adults affected by breast cancer including resiliency and well-being, intimacy and practical matters. We’ve also created opportunities for you to connect with others just like you by phase or community.
What can my co-survivor expect at the YSC Virtual Symposium?
I am a young adult living with metastatic breast cancer. Are there workshops or meetups that will be of interest to me?
Does it matter if I am newly diagnosed, post-treatment or a long-term survivor (five or more years out of treatment)?
Nope! The YSC Virtual Symposium format is meant to delve into how your breast cancer diagnosis impacted you and how it has shaped you today. We hope that many of the workshops and meetups will provide you with the tools to create your best life now and throughout any phase of your experience.
