Welcome to Tamara Tamburro's Page

Tamara Tamburro 

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, and I'm lucky. I'm lucky because it was caught early and I survived. Even though it's been 12 years, each year I hold by breath until I receive the all clear from my mammogram. There are so many who are not as lucky as I am, and for them I will ride. I include the memory of my mom and my grandmother in my ride too. They had breast cancer as well. Grandma got diagnosed back in the 60's when the only treatment was a radical mastectomy. She endured her struggle with humor and dignity. She instilled that in me. This battle continues and it is attacking even younger women. I worry about my own daughter now. I will fight this war against cancer by raising money. I'm not a research scientist or a doctor so this is what I can do. I can ride my bike and raise awareness while providing funding for treatment and research.

The YSC Tour de Pink is a 3-day, 200 mile bike ride for breast cancer. The ride directly supports Young Survival Coalition (YSC) and provides care for young women facing their own battle with breast cancer. 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.

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.
