NEW DATES FOR YOU NIGHT Class of 2021
WE PERSEVERE and RISE UP! Nobody does that better than the sisters of You Night. 2020 and 2021 have delivered a some significant blows to our communities and to our organization, but we have never once given up. When you attend You Night, your ticket will help us sustain and grow the You Night mission of providing emotional healing programs to women diagnosed with cancer. We are sad that Hurricane Ida forced us to change the date of the event, but thankfully, we were able to secure the new dates! We count this as a huge blessing.
We look forward to having you as our guest at You Night at the Jefferson Performing Arts Center in Metairie, LA as we celebrate the New Orleans Class of 2021 -- a sisterhood of cancer survivors who have participated in You Night's Runway Empowerment Program. The program is designed to offer identity building and self-esteem activities to help women live their best lives after a cancer diagnosis. You Night is an annual high-energy, inspiring production, honoring the members of the class of 2021. The cancer survivor role models who will be walking the runway have worked together since January with professional runway coaches. The audience will cheer as these sister warriors strut their strength showing the world that cancer does not define them. Guests who purchase tickets are making our year-round programs possible, benefitting the WE LIFT YOU UP fund - a public charity whose mission is to help women embrace life beyond a cancer diagnosis (EIN 82-4444545).

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)
