THE STORY:

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

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

I was shy of my 26th birthday.  A year away from finishing up college. When i was diagnosed with, stage 1 aggressive Non-Hodgkin's NK Blastic Cell Lymphoma. My first reaction was complete shock! After being told the rigorous chemotherapy sessions and radiation thats was to follow. My warrior spirit set in, which was determined to kick this stupid cancers butt! Even though, cancer has left me with 30 pounds of extra weight and hot flashes as a side affect. The desire to live, laugh, and love has set in more than ever. Although, my family and friends were supportive through this time, I still felt isolated. They could see what was happening, but didnt know how it felt. Please support this wonderful organization and help me reach my goal of $500, your support will be appreciate it. God Bless :)

Thank You!

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.”
