Before i2y I had never even met anyone my age with cancer and I was intimidated by the "Races" for the cure. When I heard about a "Stupid Cancer Happy Hour" I was in! I thought it was such a great, unique idea! My husband and I attended that happy hour which was my first time meeting Matthew and I must say that I am in awe of his dedication and enthusiasm. It was also my first time being in a room full of young cancer survivors. It was truly an incredible experience for me. For the first time in the 6 years since my diagnosis I felt a sense of belonging that had been missing for so long. What I really love and find unique about i2y is that the focus is on how to help young people “live” after cancer. i2y is an invaluable resource for all young cancer survivors. Matthew has begun a revolution in how the public views young adults with cancer and has provided us with a one stop portal for support, connection, and resources.

being given the opportunity to meet so many young survivors and making some new friends along the way.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
