We provide financial support and resources to young breast cancer patients, between the ages of 21-40.

What we do

They quickly learned that there are many unique complexities to the young adult experience of breast cancer.

Soon after, they began to participate in the podcast, Survive + Thrive, where they heard countless stories of young women who were struggling financially, mentally, and physically.

Bess and Elisa wanted to do more to help these women, and TBBC was the result.

Meet Bess & Elisa

Co-founders Bess Hagans and Elisa DiMeo were diagnosed with breast cancer at age 32 and 24, respectively, and shortly after diagnosis, discovered a world of support through the online young breast cancer community.

The need for support and resources is urgent for young patients on their way to recovery.
