Welcome to Kristin Lonergan's Page

UPDATE: May 11, 2019 Hi everyone! Some of you know I have had another hurdle thrown at me. I love challenges and I will win. My April brain MRI came back showing a small tumor. I will be having surgery to remove it and see if it’s cancer. In my mind it’s benign until they say otherwise. I will be doing this ride and it means even more to me. Please help me get to my goal! I can’t do this without your support. I love you all and thank you for your constant support in my battle.

In March I went to a YSC summit for young women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. It was exactly what I needed. As you all know in August of 2017 I was diagnosed with 2 different breast cancers at age 36. My left side was more advanced and had jumped to the nearby lymph nodes and I am still undergoing chemo for it however, because I discovered the mass in my left breast it led to the discovery of the right breast cancer which was early(stage 1) My right breast cancer is no longer detected and I'm on the long term treatment for it. I was lucky to come across YSC and all they do for young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. The summit motivated me to take action and give back by signing up for this 3-day ride. It will be one month after my last chemo treatment and I am calling it my celebration ride.

This year I have made an exciting and challenging commitment to participate in YSC Tour de Pink, a three-day, 200 mile bike ride for breast cancer. I know I can do it with your help encouraging me and supporting me with a donation.

Tour de Pink is much more than just a bike ride, it’s a chance to honor survivors, raise awareness, and support important programs for young women affected by breast cancer. I hope I can count on you to help me reach my fundraising goal!

Your donation will directly support Young Survival Coalition and ensure that no young woman faces breast cancer alone. YSC offers resources, connections and outreach so women feel supported, empowered and hopeful. YSC is the only national nonprofit that solely focuses on serving young women under the age of 40 affected by breast cancer. YSC serves over 8,000 women each year with support and education to be their best health advocate throughout all stages of breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and long-term survivorship.

Cancer can be a very isolating disease, and especially so for a young woman who may still be finishing their education, starting a career, and building her romantic and family life. YSC’s supportive services include: in-person support groups around the country, online video support groups, one-on-one peer mentoring, creation and distribution of free educational materials for survivors, co-survivors and healthcare providers, a training program for survivors to amplify the need for expanded research and advocacy, and an annual conference called the YSC Summit. Read more about YSC here: youngsurvival.org

You can view YSC’s audited financials and annual reports online here: youngsurvival.org/who-we-are/financial-information

How will your donation help?

$25 could fund YSC materials at three healthcare providers’ offices.
$100 could provide a Newly Diagnosed Navigator to six women when they need it most.
$250 could allow us to train four survivors to serve as a peer supporters.
$500 could fund a survivor advocate in our RISE training program
$1,200 could pay for two young women to travel to the YSC Summit, an annual conference for young women affected by breast cancer and their co-survivors.

Any amount helps!

As I train for this amazing ride I plan to update this page frequently along with my social media accounts so that all of my supporters can see my progress.

Thank you in advance for your support. I truly appreciate your generosity.
