THE STORY:

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!

Stupid Cancer (aka The I'm Too Young For This! Cancer Foundation) is a non-profit organization that empowers young adults affected by cancer through innovative and award-winning programs and services. We are the nation's largest support community for this underserved population and serve as a bullhorn for the young adult cancer movement. Our charter is to ensure that no one goes unaware of the age-appropriate resources they are entitled to so they can get busy living.

A TIME Magazine Best 50 Website, FOX News Top 10 Healthcare Blog and winner of "Most Innovative Use Of Social Media In The World 2011" by the Classy Awards, we support a global network of survivors, caregivers, providers and advocates to ensure that no young adult goes unaware of the age-appropriate resources they are entitled to so they can get busy living. 

Our innovative and multi-award-winning programs—such as The Stupid Cancer Show, the OMG! Cancer Summit For Young Adults and the Stupid Cancer Boot Camp—have brought the cause of 'cancer under 40' to the national spotlight and rallied a brand new generation of activists to give a much needed voice to our forgotten population.

Stupid cancer. Survivors rule.
