Review for Stupid Cancer, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

There's nothing out there quite like i[2]y out there for young adults with cancer. Many of us in our 20s and 30s know someone with cancer, but often it is a parent or grandparent. When a friend or colleague, someone OUR age gets cancer, it is confusing about what to do, where to seek information, and how to help. Plus, it makes you realize how little information and young adult cancer support there is out there. I'm Too Young For This fills in the blanks. I've attended a few i[2]y Stupid Cancer Happy Hours to not only support my friends that have cancer or who are survivors, but also to get support myself as a friend of a young adult who has cancer. I've been impressed by how inclusive this group is, and their goals of improving the survival rate of young adults with cancer. Other cancer organizations are definitely bigger, but bigger isn't always better, especially when it comes to cancer.

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

- The personable, inclusive aspect of events

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

- Cancer survivors and young adults with cancer.

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

- Improve cancer survival rates in young adults

Ways to make it better...

- More people knew about the organization

One thing I'd also say is that...

- It's an awesome organization.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
