THE STORY:

I was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 23 and received a Bone Marrow Transplant at the age of 24. During my battle I felt utterly alone....that is until I found I2Y. Here, I found support from other young adults and access to information which applied to ME and MY STORY for the first time. Please consider donating to support this network an building support for other young adult survivors- we are the forgotten ones and it is NOT OK!

 

I 2 Y - I'm Too Young For This! Cancer Foundation Inc wrote -

70,000 Americans between 15-39 are diagnosed with cancer each year. That's one every eight minutes. This is not OK! 

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.

“The OMG! Summit taught me to keep fighting, be my own advocate and never give up, no matter what the doctor says.”

"I loved meeting new people as well as seeing old friends in person who I’d only known through Facebook.”

“The OMG! Summit and the sheer enormity of our community has left me more inspired than ever."

“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.”
