History & Partners

The Louisiana Cancer Prevention and Control Programs

The Louisiana Cancer Prevention and Control Programs, which are housed at the LSU Health New Orleans’ School of Public Health, and Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, launched SurviveDAT, a resource for young breast cancer patients and caregivers in 2011. SurviveDAT then expanded its online communications beyond southern Louisiana to become the lead in the Gulf States Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network (GS YBCSN) which offers online support and resources to young women all over Louisiana, through SurviveMISS headed by the University of Mississippi Medical Center, and through SurviveAL, overseen by the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s School of Nursing. The GS YBCSN is supported by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Louisiana's Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network

Young women with breast cancer face unique issues. And in the South, there are more young women overall facing breast cancer. In Louisiana, young African-American women are significantly more likely to suffer from breast cancer.

That is why SurviveDAT is here. Part of the Gulf States Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network, SurviveDAT's mission is to help improve the quality of life for young breast cancer survivors, as well as their family and friends, by providing continuing resources and support.
