WE RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS
FILLING A VITAL NEED
FOR YOUNG WOMEN DIAGNOSED WITH BREAST CANCER
As a woman diagnosed with breast cancer you face a unique set of challenges that your older counterparts do not. You may be grappling with issues around physical and emotional intimacy with your partners. Your ability to bear or raise children may be compromised. Maybe your career has been interrupted in the middle of your professional prime, adding financial strain to the emotional burden of your diagnosis. You may be at a loss to know how you can possibly fulfil your obligations to your children or to others who depend on you.
What will happen in your intimate relationships? What are the potential impacts on your sexuality? How do other young women navigate all aspects of their busy, vibrant lives after a breast cancer diagnosis? How do they cope with changes to their bodies and body image? The questions are endless, but chances are you have found few places to turn to for inspiration, answers, emotional support, and health and wellness resources. You know firsthand that your age group has been underserved and ineffectively supported. iRise Above strives to fill these gaps through unique offerings that are unparalleled, targeted and desperately needed among the young female breast cancer community.
iRise Above is here with health and wellness advice and resources specific to women your age, along with access to a community of your peers.

HEALTH & WELLNESS

Mindfulness & Meditation

OUR WELLNESS COLLECTIVE
Advances in early detection and treatment have increased breast cancer survival rates, but this progress has burdened young women with a heavy cost. While this vulnerable segment may be living longer, they are doing so in the near absence of accessible quality-of-life resources relevant to their age group. These women often become depressed, feeling adrift and alone as their lives and their recovery become overwhelmingly difficult. As they repeatedly come up against roadblocks, they stop seeking help with the physical and emotional scars of the disease. Their chances of doing well diminish as their drive and potential are needlessly tamped down and whittled away.
Young women need and deserve targeted, age-appropriate, and connected health and wellness resources to help them face their unique and difficult challenges. As more and more young women face early diagnoses, the role of iRise Above in filling the support gap becomes ever more urgent and vital.
iRise Above has a Wellness Collective of Advisors to help you!
