I wanted to share some information about a resource for young women - before, during and after breast cancer - Tigerlily Foundation. Tigerlily Foundation was created by a young breast cancer survivor for young breast cancer survivors - to educate, advocate for, empower and provide young women with hands on support and services, including meals, buddies, buddy bags, financial assistance, empowerment and people to connect with who are going through the same thing that you are.
Call us when you're newly diagnosed and you'll get a buddy bag full of neat little surprises to get you through treatment and help you start to think about how you can use this experience to make your life more meaningful and powerful than before. One of our programs provides financial assistance, based on need and meeting several pre-requisites and if you are in certain areas of the United States, we can provide you with meals too! We also educate young women - 15 and older about the importance of being aware of their breast health and we'd love to have you as part of our community.
For more information, visit the Tigerlilly Foundation website.
