Next Step provides valuable services to a large population of young adults whom live with effects of Cancer everyday. What many people do not realize is that Cancer affects your life completely, financially, mentally, physically, and socially. One of the many services Next Step provides is retreats for Cancer patients and survivors. Retreats, provide you opportunities to meet incredibly amazing people, learn about yourself, you click instantly with others, no one is an outcast, or made to feel different because you have Cancer.

Even though Cancer is horrible, and evil, Next Step provides the sanctuary for healing, learning, and kinship that Cancer patients and Survivor often never get to experience. I am fortunate to have benefited from Next Step's program and I look forward to meeting more souls that are equally as beautiful in the future.

The Great!

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

Learning that I am not alone in this ugly world, where if you are different, sick, or poor, you are not important. I am a survivor, I am proud to be one, and I am not alone.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them funds to help more patients and Survivors so that no one is excluded, in addition spreading the word to other Oncology Clinic's in their area about there programs and services.

I am a young adult cancer survivor who was diagnosed with stage four Sarcoma at the age of 26. The programs through Next Step helped me connect with other cancer survivors my age and gave me the opportunity to learn new things about myself. Their programs are sooo important and provide a much needed outlet for young adults with cancer. Being a young adult with a life threatening disease can feel really lonely, through Next Step's programs I have been able to talk about my unique circumstances with people who understand. I know I'm not alone anymore.

My own great experiences and talking to other participants. Everyone enjoyed their time at the two Next Step retreats I've been to.

The only thing I would say is for the experience to be longer!

Getting access to quality medical treatment is only part of the problem for young people suffering from AIDS, sickle cell and cancer. They need personal support to cope with these debilitating diseases too, and that is what Next Step does really well. Whether it is the 1-1 tutoring and mentoring that the Strive program provides for teens with sickle cell, Face2Face’s retreats and workshops for young adults with cancer, or the support and education that One Love gives to young people suffering from AIDS, these programs make a difference! The friends and relatives that care for young people struggling to cope with these diseases need help too, and that is where the CARE program fits in. I am very proud to support what Next Step does. I also appreciate the way they use my money – 80% of it goes to the programs.

I only wish they had the resources to ramp up these programs. They are scalable and they work!
