I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 40, so I was on the old side of young when cancer struck. I didn’t have all the worries of a young woman diagnosed with breast cancer, but there are definitely a variety of concerns young women deal with that older women don’t. Today I’ve compiled a list of helpful links for young breast cancer fighters and survivors.
Wildfire Magazine is the first. I have had the opportunity to write two articles for Wildfire, a bi-monthly magazine for young fighters and survivors of breast cancer. The editor, April Stearns, is a young survivor with a heart and passion to come alongside other women. Her magazine has real and raw stories and is beautifully laid out. You can subscribe to receive a print or online version of this magazine. It’s good stuff.
Wildfire recently began a partnership with Rethink Breast Cancer. I haven’t spent a lot of time on this website yet, but it’s definitely worth taking a look .
Below are links to a few other organizations and blogs for young women with breast cancer
