THE STORY:

I'm Angela Van Treuren, Here's my story:

 

It’s not okay!
 

It's not okay that every 8 minutes, a young adult is diagnosed with cancer and every hour a young adult loses their battle to cancer. Cancer is now the #1 disease killer in young adults.

 

I was 29, just living my life and trying to grow in my career when I was diagnosed with a rare and agressive form of neuorendcrine cervical cancer called small cell carcinoma.

 

After undergoing rigorous chemotherapy I was left extremely fatigued and confused about what my future would hold. As a single young adult I should have been shopping and dating, but I could barely leave my house. Although my family and friends were extremely supportive, I did not know how to move on, and worse, I had no one that could relate to what I was going through.

 

That is, until I discovered the I'm Too Young For This! Cancer Foundation, the largest support community of young adult survivors and caregivers in the US. Online at http://StupidCancer.com, they give survivors like me a voice and raise awareness for the unique issues that I face as a young adult; issues like isolation, fertility, sexuality, dating, insurance, career building and more.


Their annual conference, the OMG! Cancer Summit for Young Adults, is a pivotal event that brings together hundreds of young adult survivors and caregivers for a one-of-a-kind experience of healing, education and community. No one should go through cancer alone. The OMG! Cancer Summit makes this possible.

 

Please support my efforts to ensure that I and other survivors like me get the chance to attend this event and make a difference for so many thousands of young adults in need.

 

Here is what others have had to say about this event in the past:

 

“The OMG! Summit taught me to keep fighting, be my own advocate and never give up, no matter what the doctor says.”
 

“Through the OMG! Summit, I made so many new connections. I can't wait to spread more awareness about young adult cancer.”

 

“What an amazing, life-changing and inspiring weekend.”
 

"I loved meeting new people at the OMG! Summit. Seeing old friends and being inspired by the enormity of our community has helped me to get buys living."

70,000 Americans between 15-39 are diagnosed with cancer each year. That's one every eight minutes. This is not OK! 

The OMG! Cancer Summit For Young Adults is a major international oncology conference and social networking event for young adults affected by all cancers, as well as for their caregivers and providers. OMG! is the “All Star Game” for the young adult cancer movement, bringing together the nation's foremost advocates to discuss our most relevant issues. Join the hundreds who descend upon NYC each year to get educated, organized, mobilized and united as one global community.
