Young and Strong Program for Young Women with Breast Cancer
A cancer diagnosis is a life-altering experience for most people, but young women with breast cancer often face extra challenges specific to their stage of life. As they manage a serious illness they may also be concerned about fertility, raising children, finishing school, managing a career, or building relationships.
Young and Strong was founded in 2005 by oncologist Dr. Ann Partridge. It is the first and only one of its kind in New England. Young and Strong has guided more than 3,000 young women on their journeys through and beyond cancer, offering comprehensive care, support, and education tailored specifically for them.
This program is close to our hearts, as John’s wife, Kristen, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer at age 40, 3 months after delivering their third child, Greyson (twins, Cash and Vivienne, were 22 months old at the time). Young and Strong became part of the Collins family.
Kristen was treated at Dana Farber Cancer Institute by an amazing team of professionals, including Dr. Ann Partridge. The support Kristen, John and their family received from Dr. Partridge and Young and Strong, helped manage over a year’s length of time including chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation.
Truly blessed to be where she is today, Kristen walks for ‘Team Young and Strong’ each year in the Jimmy Fund Walk, and will continue to as long as she can.
We are committed to supporting Young and Strong and Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
