Stupid Cancer
July 8, 2009

I found i2y not long after I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. My doctor's blew me off because I had the "easy" cancer and because I was young. People don't die from thyroid cancer so why should I be upset? Except that I was an emotional mess and needed someone even remotely close to my age who had been through this cancer crap. I found it in i2y. Not only did they help me through cancer but they gave me a place to volunteer and give back. I have made the most amazing friends through i2y and it's a really great feeling to be able to give back and help someone else who is like I was - feeling alone and way too young to have cancer.

The Great!

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

all the people who have joined the Facebook and Twitter pages.

Ways to make it better...

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

reach out to more providers.

More feedback

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

the opportunities it has given me to give back to others and new friends that I have made.

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

funny, awesome, kind and encouraging!

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

take over the world - duh! Oh and help more young adults with cancer.

Ways to make it better...

MZ would come and visit me in Texas.

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

explosive growth and taking all of those people on Facebook and Twitter and making them productive members.

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

I love MZ!
