THE STORY:

I was 30 years old, married to my sweetheart and just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy.  6 weeks into the happiest time of my life I felt a pain in my chest.  At 8 weeks old, Everett's Mommy was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Diffuse Large Cell B with a Mediastinal Mass (the size of a small melon).  I felt alone and scared.  Who has a baby and gets cancer?!  Well, after I found I 2 Y, I met other Mommies with small children that were battling cancer.  I 2 Y's yearly OMG Cancer Summit for Young Adults is in a word, AWESOME!  In the past, I have met some really great people there and I've learned so much.  It is invaluable!  Please help me raise funds so I can attend this year's Summit in Las Vegas.

 

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.”
