Self-Love Workshop

Ta'lor Pinkston.jpg

Meet Ta'lor Pinkston, therapist who's also known as, "The Heart Advocate".


Previously, Ta'lor led a 5-series self-love workshop, and it was by far the most positive feedback we've ever received from the YASU members who participated.

Due to that, we're extending it by making this a 12-series workshop!

  • Each month will focus on a different theme. 

  • Participants will receive journals for keeping their "heart work" organized

  • The self-love quiz will measure participants' progress

  • Workshops will be held on the last Tuesday of each month from 7:00-8:30pm EST

The Self-Love workshop meets the last Tuesday of each month from 7:00-8:30pm EST

38 yrs old

Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer Survivor

Being able to get the grant each year helps to pay some bills that need caught up on. Going in and out of treatments, surgeries, scans, etc., and having to put payments off and picking and choosing who gets money first gets tiring. The grant helps relieve some of that stress.


23 yrs old

Leukemia Survivor

I had no idea that the group I was joining would become one of the strongest parts of my support system. They understand me better than my friends and family.


Young Adult Co-Survivor

The socials are what really helped me. Being able to talk to others about what my wife had gone through helped tremendously to put things in perspective. I can't say enough about what YASU has done for me, my wife, and our relationship.

Financial assistance is available to help reduce the burden of financial toxicity during and after cancer treatment. After registering, someone will follow up to provide you with an application.
