Stupid Cancer
July 7, 2009

Ever since I have started volunteering for i[2]y there has been an overwhelming amount of support in my area. The local hospital, survivors, local foundations, and community can't wait to help our chapter. There are so many people out there that feel that young adult cancer patients and survivors are being under served, but i[2]y helps people. Not only has the organization helped so many people, but the leadership is outstanding. When I was planning my trip to New York I simply wanted to visit the i[2]y office, but Matthew Zachary wanted me to visit and stay for the Stupid Cancer Show as well. Matthew Zachary and Jack Bouffard are most down to earth and kind people I have ever met. When I met them I knew that I was with an organization that truly cared. From then on I knew I wanted to be more involved with i[2]y. I love working for this organization and I can't wait to set up more events in the future.

The Great!

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

my community.We held our first i[2]y event (Stupid Cancer Ice Cream Social)at the end of the semester.It was tricky because it was of the time, but we had huge crowd!The ice cream shop said we were the largest event since Children's Miracle Network!

More feedback

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

informing my peers about cancer awareness for our age group.

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

amazing! I love the people that I have been working with.

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

take over the world!i[2]y would be able to help so many people with that money. i[2]y would be able to send more literature to hospitals/clinics and create events for young adults survivors all over.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
