Stupid Cancer
July 7, 2009

I came across I2Y about 2 years ago when I came across a link. I was diagnosed with leukemia in 2005 and had been trying to find an organization that dealt with young adults going through a cancer diagnosis. Thank God I came across this organization. The founder, Matthew Zachary, has such a passion for young adult cancer advocacy and it totally shows. Everyone that I have met through this organization has been such a Godsend and has showed me that even though we are dealt a horrible life card, it won't take us down! Stupid Cancer!!!

The Great!

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

not only my life, but in the others that I have met. I am very proud to wear my Stupid Cancer shirt and I love spreading the word about Stupid Cancer!

Ways to make it better...

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

not change a thing! :) Matthew is doing a hell of a job!!

More feedback

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

the people I have met and the friendships I have formed.

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

open, honest, kind, caring, awesome, strong, passionate, amazing...etc etc etc

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

Go more international and advertise more! Maybe one day we will be bigger than the ACS!!

Ways to make it better...

there are really no bad points, except for the fact that we could use more funding.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

probably funding.

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

STUPID CANCER!! SURVIVORS RULE!!
