Who Is Hope For Young Adults With Cancer?
Hope For Young Adults With Cancer is a 501(c)(3) organization that is passionate about making the lives of young adults, ages 18 - 40, living with cancer a little bit easier. Our mission is to connect with our peers in the fight to provide direct financial support and a social network and outlet for those battling, surviving & living with cancer. Hope4YAWC is one of only a handful of non-profit organizations nationwide that focuses on providing direct financial support to young adults with cancer 18 – 40.
- Over 72,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer every year.
- Survival rates for young adults have not risen since 1975.
- This is due to unique factors such as lack of insurance, minimal participation in clinical trials and delayed diagnoses.
How Does Hope For Young Adults With Cancer Help?
Hope For Young Adults With Cancer raises funds through fundraisers & events organized by the charity & through partnerships with other organizations & businesses in the community as well as through direct donations from businesses & individuals. We in turn provide direct financial support to young adults who currently are battling cancer as well as those who have been in remission for up to 5 years after their treatment. We provide this support to those who need it after a thorough examination and selection process through our "Giving Hope Fund" application.
Hope For Young Adults With Cancer’s “Giving Hope Fund”
The "Giving Hope Fund" allows young adults currently battling cancer as well as those who have been in remission for up to 5 years after their treatment, the opportunity to help pay for necessities they encounter in everyday life. This includes but is not limited to obligations such as rent & mortgage payments, cell phone & credit card bills, clothing, work & educated related materials, department store & grocery gift cards, as well as laptops & electronic devices. We would of course be remiss if we didn't include the opportunity to make payments on all forms of medical bills, healthcare premiums, doctor visits & prescription co-pays. The “Giving Hope Fund” is posted on our website and through our social media accounts twice a year, normally once in the spring and once in the fall.
