It's Different This Year...

For the past four years we have honored and shared personal stories of 10 brave young individuals with a breast cancer diagnosis. The Lanterns of Hope event held each October has been a night of hope, tears, hugs, love, laughter, and community. A community of those we have known for decades and those we have just met today.

The deep connection in this community is critical to maintain the courage to meet another day. The YWBCAF fosters a community of support and understanding. We have offered resources, financial assistance, care packages and access to mental health support for over 15 years. We make sure no one fights alone.

This year will be different. In the years past the tent has been filled to capacity with other survivors and loved ones to offer love, support, memories of those we have lost and power to forge ahead.

In 2020, we still honor the 10 strong women in person in the beautiful tent but, due to Covid, we do not have the power of community and loved ones with us.

You Can Help

In addition to the luminaria in the tent, you also receive a printable, personalized certificate. Buy the luminaria in honor of or in remembrance of a loved one and we will send a note and certificate to the email address you specify.

We can work together to fill the tent with power light and love. Please tune in to see the event Oct 4th at 6pm on Facebook Live.

Please order before Saturday Oct 3rd. We will have some available for sale during the event as well but it is very helpful if you can purchase in advance. As always, we appreciate your support. We couldn’t do it without you!

We still need to fill that tent with light, hope and love, so we invite you to help by donating a lantern or orb to light up the tent that night as we live stream on Facebook.
