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)
