This fundraising page may be in my name, but this is to benefit all young adults dealing with cancer, who need help, don't know what to do, who to turn to, or just want to talk to others to see what's in store. Please donate whatever you can spare so that others can attend this year. $1, $5, $ 25 or whatever you can it doessn't matter. If you considered giving me a birthday present, DON'T! ***Donate here instead!!*** Your money will go to a much better cause!
Jesennia, a single mother of 5 beautiful children, worked as emergency responder. She is also a caring and hardworking mother that would help anyone in the world if she could. In the aftermath of 9/11 she was one of the workers that helped out in the recovery and response for 9 months of working at ground zero. She was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 6/20/2006. Jesennia was diagnosed with Papillary and follicular carcinoma, a rare combination.
I loves the feeling that I gets when doing something new and taking a step out of my comfort zone as I try to accomplish something new. The moment when I actually accomplishes something that I thought was unattainable is so motivating and invigorating. I wants to be able to give this same feeling to the other fellow survirors. I hope you will all join me in supporting this wonderful mission.
So we need your help! Remember that every $1,500 you raise helps another young adult with cancer. We can't change this disease, or what has happen to young adult cancer survivors but we can change how they fight it and their outlook of things. The greatest way to achieve success is by giving to others. By helping others you truly help yourself knowing you made a difference in a person’s life. We would like Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers ahead of time.
Thanks for taking the time to read about this cause, as always, I appreciate your support.

Young adults, a largely unknown group in the war on cancer, account for 72,000 new diagnosis each year. That's one every eight minutes. It's also seven times more all than pediatric cancers. 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 our 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.”
