I have had the pleasure and honor of working with i2y for several years. Matthew and his team are dedicated, professional, creative, knowledgeable, passionate and formidable! I simply cannot thank them enough for providing much needed information and support to our young adult population. As a professional in the field, I refer every single one of my YA patients to i2y and they are ever grateful.

I'm Too Young For This! has filled a huge gap in the young adult cancer community. The organization has done an incredible job of increasing awareness of young adult cancer issues. In addition, it has presented an out-of-the-box approach to tackling these issues that other, larger, national organizations have been too afraid to take. The organization has attracted an army of survivors and allies and I cannot wait to see how they are mobilized to bring about change in the oncology world.

Few organizations have the central heart which keeps things alive over the long haul. i2y is an exception. Led by a champion of cancer survivors, Matthew Zachary, i2y provides a broad range of social, informational and cultural resources uniquely helpful to young individuals dealing with cancer. When the dark hours of cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship arrive, i2y provides a beacon of hope and possibility to all seekers. I have been referring my cancer patients to i2y for years now. I believe they feel support and connection as a result. This provides immeasurable improvement in their outcomes.

I met Matthew Zachary when I interviewed him for my book on young adult cancer and have been hooked ever since. You would not know that this organization started a mere few years ago out of his apartment in Brooklyn. Their presence rivals organizations ten times their size. That is impressive to me. The thing that is so special about i2y is their ability to harness social media and use it to their advantage, not just to promote their organization, but to really start a movement. So many young adults feel like a fish out of water in the cancer community and the i2y identity gives them a home, lets them feel not so alone. He does this all with humor and an unstoppable passion that is just contagious.

The Great!

I2Y is a fantastic organization! Not only do they have an amazing website full of information and resources available for young adults facing cancer, but they have a weekly online radio show addressing all of the key issues of this patient population. This should definitely be the first online stop for a newly diagnosed young adult. The message of I2Y and Stupid Cancer resonates around the world through local community events hosted by and attended by young adult cancer patients and survivors. This organization provides support for a demographic that is often overlooked in a cool hip way that makes young adults excited about participating. I cannot say enough wonderful things about I2Y!

change the way young adult cancer patients are perceived and treated. We need more awareness about cancer, as well as clinical trials and research devoted to this patient population.

I2Y is a driving force in our generation for young adult cancer awareness. I am impressed with their high professional and ethical standards-- and their ability to hold large companies and organizations responsible. I2Y provides a much critical eye and platform for activism in our generation. In addition, they fill a niche that was completely ignored before. They are doing amazing things for the young adult survivor group.
