70,000 Americans between 15-39 are diagnosed with cancer each year. That's one every eight minutes. This is not OK!
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 help support my efforts to ensure that other survivors like me get the chance to attend this event. With your contribution, we will be able to provide a priceless opportunity for as many young adult cancer survivors as possible.
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 busy living."
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, cargivers 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.
