Rielyn is turning 13 in a few weeks and wanted to do something meaningful to celebrate. It is her wish to walk in The Color Run with her best friends and raise money for 13-Thirty.
The MISSION of 13-Thirty Cancer Connect, Inc. is to help adolescents and young adults (AYAs) impacted by cancer live their very best lives – today!
- Our resources help AYAs enhance their coping skills and self-esteem by building satisfying peer connections, learning to self-advocate, and developing effective self-management tools for long-term health.
- A comprehensive continuum of support (from diagnosis and treatment to healthy survivorship or if necessary, end-of-life) helps AYAs with cancer successfully transition through each stage of their cancer experience.
- We advocate strongly for improved delivery of medical and educational services through clinician education initiatives and outreach to schools and universities.
- Together with our strategic partners, we work to increase access to age-appropriate care for all AYA patients and survivors with concentrated focus on improving survivorship (early detection, health maintenance and follow-up care). - that focuses on connecting teens and young adults living with cancer.
Please help grant Rielyn's wish and donate to this wonderful organization. 13thirty.org
