The statistics are staggering around breast cancer in young women: women ages 15-34 and 35-54 die more frequently from breast cancer than any other cancer. Of the 190,000 new cases of breast cancer in women, the American Cancer Society predicts roughly 10% to be women under 45. And unfortunately, young women with cancer face more aggressive cancers with lower survival rates, according to the American Cancer Society.

Thanks to the Young Survivors Coalition, young women diagnosed with breast cancer have a resource to partner with others in the same life stage. The nonprofit is known for its Newly Diagnosed Resource Kit offering support, connections, resources, and information.

Houston Aeros: Support Breast Cancer Awareness Game March 11 Plus Promo Code for Discount TicketsThe Houston Aeros partnered with Young Survivors Coalition for its March 11 Breast Cancer Awareness Game kicking off at 5:05 pm against the Grand Rapids Griffins. Though the hockey guys won’t be sporting pink jerseys, they will play with sticks wrapped in pink!

Some of the exciting events planned for the March 11 Houston Aeros game include a YSC Silent Auction, Pink Glove Dance (everyone will receive a pink glove to help break the record for the largest pink glove dance), and Human Pink Ribbon on the ice. Folks who purchase a $10 pink Houston Aeros shirt designed by the players’ wives will be a part of the Human Pink Ribbon! All proceeds from the silent auction and t-shirt sales will be donated to the Young Survival Coalition, as well as a portion of tickets sold.
