Bear witness to a series of inspiring stories detailing the battle waged by younger women against breast cancer and all-too-often ignored by the mainstream in an important documentary featuring detailed interviews with both the Young Survival Coalition and renowned medical expert Dr. Susan Love. Frequently misdiagnosed and ignored by the medical community due to their age, breast cancer victims in their twenties and thirties have struggled to spread the word that the devastating affliction isn't exclusive to older women. As more than 10,000 younger women are diagnosed every year, often with more aggressive forms of breast cancer, the stories of various young survivors combine to inspire and comfort those who may be going through a similar experience.
