Not Your Mother’s to help raise funds for Young Survival Coalition

Not Your Mother’s also will support the charity and help raise awareness via its social media network, and will offer promotions and giveaways.
"We partnered with YSC because we want to help spread their important message among our young customers," stated Bethany Pagliarulo, Not Your Mother’s owner. "Contrary to common belief, young women do get breast cancer and generally face more aggressive cancers and lower survival rates."

YSC offers resources, connections and outreach so women feel supported, empowered and hopeful. Through action, advocacy and awareness, YSC seeks to educate and influence the medical, research, breast cancer and legislative communities to address breast cancer in young women.
