Each year, 70,000 Americans between 15-39 are diagnosed with cancer. That's one every eight minutes. This is not OK!
While survival rates for children and older adults have increased over recent decades, survival rates for young adults with cancer have not improved since 1975! Plus, in addition to the initial hurdle of overcoming cancer, this group of individuals face a lifetime of follow-up tests for recurrence and late effects from treatment that can include infertility, heart and lung conditions, and even secondary cancers.
The OMG! Cancer Summit is the premiere oncology conference and social networking event for the young adult cancer movement. A program of the I'm Too Young For This! Cancer Foundation, the OMG! Cancer Summit, now in it's 5th year, has become a pivotal healthcare event that inspires thousands of survivors, caregivers and providers—along with scores of academic, advocacy, research and support organizations—to get organized, build community and unite as one to drive change.
Join our team and support efforts to ensure that young adult survivors get the chance to attend this event and participate in a life-affirming weekend of support, education, community and hope.
Stupid cancer. Survivors rule.
