I2y led by Matthew Zachary filled a void for young adult cancer patients and survivors. Long overdue, i2y raises awareness, conducts a weekly radio show and is a treasure trove of information for young adults affected by cancer. One of the more recent highlights was the cancer summit for young adults, which had amazing speakers and excellent breakaway groups/workshops. With a heart of gold, tremendous energy and an internal drive that won't quit or slow down Matthew is the man!

This is a wonderful organization that does everything it can to service a somewhat neglected population in the cancer world - adolescents and young adults. It speaks their language and hosts appropriate events to support, educate and advocate for its constituency. It's motto - "Stupid Cancer" says it all!

The Great!

Our daughter is a young cancer survivor (diagnosed with ovarian cancer at 26 but now thank g-d cancer free). She was able to find this wonderful support group and has made many close friends over the years. Unfortunately there are not enough organizations like I2Y to give the young survivors the support that they need.

The Great!

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

my daughter's outlook (which was always great) and her ability through I2Y to find and associate with other young adults who have gone through what she has.

I'm Too Young For This! starts with a mission statement and follows through with dedicated, enthusiastic volunteers and staff. At once realistic and idealistic, and a bit irreverent, i2y is exactly what I, and many others, needed when they were diagnosed. It is a chance to fight back rather than pity, to join in a network that makes you feel vibrant rather than feeble. This is a unique group, working towards an ambitious goal, that works hard to achieve that goal.

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

the enthusiasm. When I told them that I wanted to do a fundraiser for them, but I wanted it this way and that way, they still went out of their way to support me, creating logos, helping with logistics, sending a staff member to assist me the night of...

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely dedicated and knowledgeable. Carolyn Koncal helped at my event and was able to inundate every guest there with information about young adult cancers, and Matthew constantly impressed me with his continued contact and follow-up.

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

really attack it's mission for legislation supporting YA cancers. In my opinion, money is exactly what the organization is missing. It is limited mainly to events that are free or cost minimal to put on, and donations that arrive in small amounts.

I2Y has done an incredible job raising awareness of the unique issues facing young adult cancer survivors. It's passionate leader, Matthew Zachary, has created a social network growing each day by helping those in similar situations to come together. It has been California Cryobank's pleasure to sponsor such a great and necessary organization for young adult survivors.

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

Is seeing the reach this organization has had. I was amazed at the amount of young adult cancer survivors who felt 'under-served'. The amount of people now in this thing across the globe has given it legs!
