Young Adult Cancer Support Organizations:

 

Lance Armstrong Foundation - LIVESTRONG

The LIVESTRONG Young Adult Alliance is a coalition of organizations with the goal to improve the survival rates and quality of life for young adults with cancer between the ages of 15 and 40. The Alliance is committed to promoting research and the investigation of the problem, serving as a voice for the issue and promoting effective solutions.

LAF formed the LIVESTRONG Young Adult Alliance with the knowledge that unity is strength - by working together we can raise awareness and effect positive change for young adults with cancer.

California Cryobank is a proud participant in the LIVESTRONG Sharing Hope program which provides affordable sperm banking services for cancer patients with limited financial means.

 

 

I'm Too Young For This!

I'm Too Young For This!: www.imtooyoungforthis.com

i[2]y exists to ensure that every young adult affected by cancer is given access to the best age-appropriate support they are entitled to in order to get busy living at every stage of their survivorship.

I2y doesn't want you missing out on an incredible wealth of free stuff like online and offline social networking events, adventure retreats, chat rooms, forums and blogs, camping excursions, fertility advocacy, peer counseling, scholarships, financial aid, happy hours and more! (Basically, all the things you never knew you always wanted.) What's more, most of the groups who provide these services were founded by young adult survivors like you so they know what they're doing and can totally relate to what you're going through! So stop searching and start connecting with thousands of others just like you.

Now when you scream, "I'M TOO YOUNG FOR THIS!", at least you'll know you're not alone. (There's over a million of us in the US right now!) So welcome to your life + cancer; where remission is not a cure and survivorship is all that matters. Now get busy living!

California Cryobank is a proud sponsor of I2Y.
