About Us


YCT was founded in New York City in 2005. Our visionary programs were developed with an insider’s perspective. As a young survivor hyper-aware of all the pink ribbons, Luana DeAngelis found herself wondering why the bulk of funds raised were "all for the cure, and none for the women” largely bypassing those who truly suffered. Feeling inspired, our founder enlisted the skills of those in the community who feel kindred to the idea of easing the journey for people with breast cancer. Since 2005, she's developed, grown, and executed a replicable palliative care model designed to make a real difference in the lives and outcomes of people with cancer.
