YOU NIGHT HELPS WOMEN EMBRACE LIFE BEYOND CANCER.

You Night is an alternative to traditional support groups.  We offer various programs that teach cancer survivors how to overcome the physical and psychological challenges of cancer treatment through teamwork, coaching, and strong interpersonal support from a network of other survivors.


The program prepares women for life after any type of cancer by re-building self esteem, and gaining appreciation for their own bodies, and a joy for living – all through structured group experiences.  There are many ways that women who have had cancer can join this powerful sisterhood. 

We help women find their strength, purpose and passion so that they can pay it forward to others.

We rise by lifting others.

According to a new study, cancer survivors with good social support networks seem to live longer and have a lower risk of their cancer returning.​  Women with few social connections had a 43 percent higher risk of cancer returning, compared to well-connected women, the researchers found.  (link to study)

Thank you to everyone who helped us break a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the most models in a runway show.  430 models participated beating the old record of 421 models (held by a modeling agency in Spain).  Our goal was to use our empowering platform to raise awareness about all the cancers women get diagnosed with, and to share information for resources and support.  The models walked in 19 different "collections", wearing the ribbon awareness color for 19 different women's cancers. 

Below is an aerial highlight of the event.

Be sure to view our video library to see the highlights!
