THE STORY:

It’s not okay!

It's not okay that every 8 minutes, a young adult is diagnosed with cancer and every hour a young adult loses their battle to cancer.  Cancer is now the #1 disease killer in young adults.  

I have lost too many friends and family members to this terrible disease and will not go one day without fighting alongside fellow advocates, survivors, caregivers, and those still undergoing treatment.  Though I’ve seen it first hand, I never knew how large scale of an issue young adult cancer is and had no idea what I personally could do to help.

That is, until I discovered the I'm Too Young For This! Cancer Foundation, the largest support community of young adult survivors and caregivers in the United States. Online at http://StupidCancer.com, they give young adult survivors a voice and raise awareness for the unique issues that they face; issues like isolation, fertility, sexuality, dating, insurance, career building and more.

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 support my efforts to ensure that young adult survivors and caregivers get the chance to attend this event and make a difference for so many thousands of young adults in need.

 

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 buys living."
