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.
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.
Your support enables us to:
• Build new and organize existing support communities
• Deliver routine "stupid cancer" social support programs
• Organize and host the annual OMG! Cancer Summit
• Produce The Stupid Cancer Show each week
• Maintain and upgrade our website and other digital assets
