BENEFITING: 5 UNDER 40 FOUNDATION CORP
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
One out of every 210 breast cancer cases are diagnosed in women under the age of 40. And the number continues to rise.
5 Under 40 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by 5 women, all under the age of 40, who were diagnosed with breast cancer or who tested positive for the BRCA gene.
We began this organization to give other young women the necessary support and information needed to overcome this disease. Having undergone, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, reconstructive surgery, and hair loss at a young age, we aim to use our personal experiences to help other women fighting this battle.
Our mission is to provide access to the vital tools and resources necessary for early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of breast cancer. We are committed to support women under the age of 40 through every stage of this disease by empowering lives, helping preserve beauty and vitality, fostering hope and strengthening survivorship.
