THE STORY:

NEXT STEP FUND INC wrote -

Team Next Step has two wonderful people running the 121st Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017 to raise awareness about our important mission and help fund our free year-round programming for for young people, ages 16-29, who are living with cancer, HIV and rare genetic disorders.

As a result of advances in medical treatment over the past twenty years, the number of young people in the United States who are surviving chronic illnesses has nearly doubled. While the survival rates should be celebrated, aggressive medical treatment can have significant impact on the health, social and professional lives of young people living suffering from chronic illness. Problems with growth and development, fertility, language and learning disabilities, mental health issues, and other severe health complications can make the transition to adulthood and independent living seem overwhelming and next to impossible for many young people.

Resources to help these young people become successful adults are scarce. The need for Next Step programming is profound and the impact is powerful! PLEASE DONATE to our 2017 Boston Marathon Team so that we can welcome more chronically ill young people into the Next Step community and empower them to start asking "What's Next?" instead of "Why me?"

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your generous donation and for helping us shatter limitations and elevate aspirations of teens and young adults living with cancer, HIV and rare genetic disorders. We could not do this important work without your thoughtful support!

ABOUT NEXT STEP

At Next Step our young participants develop important life skills, knowledge, and the self-confidence they need to effectively manage their illness and find their sense of self, outside of their medical condition.

Next Step provides free year-round education and support programs that take place at Next Step Central in Cambridge, MA, as well as across the country in partnership with local hospitals and service organizations. Our youth-centered approach at Next Step is unique. Our young participants advise on content and co-design curricula, resulting in messaging that speaks to them in their own language. This strategy is remarkably successful at keeping them engaged and learning so that they are prepared to take the next step in their journey into adulthood.

Next Step provides the following year-round programming:

  • Music Therapy
  • Weekend retreats
  • Week-long residential summer campferences
  • Academic & career support
  • Community workshops and one-on-one mentoring
  • Leadership opportunities on regional and national levels
