University of Alabama at Birmingham – School of Nursing – Young Breast Cancer Survivorship Network

Joining the Gulf States Young Breast Cancer Survivors Network (GS YBCSN) as SurviveAL was the natural next step for the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Nursing, which had created a similar program for survivors in Birmingham "Young Breast Cancer Survivorship Network Initiative". Joining SurviveDAT, created by the Louisiana Cancer Prevention and Control Programs housed at the Louisiana State University School of Public Health and SurviveMISS, headed by the University of Mississippi Medical Center, the GS YBCSN offers online support and resources to these young women and is supported by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Alabama's Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network

Young women with breast cancer face unique issues. And in the South, there are more young women overall facing breast cancer. In Alabama, young African-American women are significantly more likely to suffer from breast cancer.

That is why SurviveAL is here. Part of the Gulf States Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network, SurviveAL's mission is to help improve the quality of life for young breast cancer survivors, as well as their family and friends, by providing continuing resources and support.
