Bay Area Young Survivors (BAYS) is a support and action group for young women in the SF Bay Area who are living with breast cancer.

Through monthly support group meetings, an online network, and community-building events, BAYS members share information, experiences, and resources. Our goal is to break the isolation of living with breast cancer by providing a community built on compassion, understanding, hope, and inspiration.




BAYS is proud to announce the launch of our new book, "The Day My Nipple Fell Off: A BAYS Anthology."  This collection of stories written by BAYS members chronicles the experiences of young women with breast cancer from diagnosis, through treatment, and in the "new normal."
