Breast cancer in the young age is rare, but the grave danger it poses to a woman’s health and life commands a special attention that must be given to this group of patients. That is why the Project 35 has been started. The coordination group for this project has set out to create a database of all patients, unify and at the same time update the treatment procedures, collect epidemiological data and make it possible for patients to take the therapy at home while having access to all appropriate, including very specialized, examinations, clinical studies and new treatment modalities.

Key words:
breast carcinoma – age of patient – chemotherapy – hormonal therapy – infertility
