The Congressional Women’s Softball Game benefiting the Young Survival Coalition features female Members of Congress and women of the DC press corps (aka Bad News Babes) as they take to the softball diamond to ultimately battle breast cancer.  The mission of CWSG is to provide much needed resources aimed at assisting young women diagnosed with the disease and supports early cancer screening awareness programs for young adults.  Since 2009, CWSG has raised more than $500,000 for young women with breast cancer because… 

Young women  CAN  and  DO  get breast cancer.  In fact, one young woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 40 minutes.
