Shocking Pink is a charitable trust founded by two young women after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Our website is still a work in progress so check back often for updates. You can also subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to hear about new developments.

The annual C4YW conference for young women affected by breast cancer takes place in the US and is a joint venture between the Young Survival Coalition (YSC) and Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC).
