BENEFITING: STUPID CANCER
EVENT DATE: Jun 09, 2011
HOURS PLEDGED: 100
70,000 Americans between 15-40 are diagnosed with cancer each year. That's one every eight minutes. The I'm Too Young For This! Cancer Foundation is the nation's largest support community for the next generation of patients, survivors and caregivers between 15-40
The Stupid Cancer "UnGala" is our signature annual young professionals social networking mixer event. It's purpose is to (1) raise awareness that young adults *can* and *do* get cancer, (2) educate the public about the young adult cancer movement and (3) provide the young adult cancer community with a hip, non-clinical and non-threatening peer-supported environment.
The Stupid Cancer UnGala empowers young adults affected by cancer – including family members and caregivers – by building community, improving quality of life and providing meaningful survivorship.
Help young adults fight cancer!
