I was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma when i was 28 years old. i noticed that i was the youngest person in the chemo suite 9 days out of 10. I couldnt relate to the older generation of people and they couldnt me. i have since been through two seperate other cancer diagnosis and only up until this year did i find planet cancer. it helps to have a place where your peers can respond to your questions and where the conversation is pertinent to your life as a young adult cancer survivor.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the number of young adult cancer survivors that are members of Planet Cancer and from hearing their stories and how Planet Cancer helps them cope.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

learning that there are others out there who struggle with the same subjects that i do as a young adult cancer survivor.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach out to many more young adult cancer survivors and offer support both financially and emotionally

I am so grateful that Planet Cancer exists. This group has provided a HUGE support system for me. That in it self is priceless. The emotional side is often pushed to the side, but I believe that it plays a big role in surviving cancer. I felt so alone,isolated,and young.The minute I logged on to this sight I was immediately surrounded with love and understanding. "yes finally someone out there gets me" The best part of it is that it is free for me to log on everyday and get the support that I need. Even when I fly to my treatment center by myself, all I have to do is log in and boom I am no longer all alone. They have also brought a large amount of knowledge and fight for better treatment to the young adult cancer community I think I would be lost with out this organization..

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help the young adult cancer community strive for better survival rates, by raising awareness, helping young adults find and or stay insured, providing funds for cancer patients to travel for treatment. The possibilities for this organization are endless.
