The Young Survival Coalition was founded in 1998 by three women diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 35. It was through their shared experience of being young and having cancer that they set out to raise awareness and become a resource for younger women battling breast cancer. Fifteen years later, they are working as hard as ever to advocate for more research about breast cancer in young women. They continue to educate young women about the importance of breast self-awareness, while also providing a community of support for young women and their loved ones.

Tommie Copper’s founder, Tom Kallish, is excited to see how the YSC is making meaningful changes in people’s lives. “Tommie Copper’s mission is to empower people to lead positive lives." Mr. Kallish added, "The Young Survival Coalition is doing this every day by providing younger women, a group that might not be aware of the importance of breast health awareness, the knowledge they need along with a community of support consisting of young women just like them.”

Tommie Copper apparel is designed to provide relief from everyday aches and pains, enhance performance and provide comfort, ultimately allowing people to lead more fulfilling lives.
