My sister really could have used an organization like Planet Cancer when she was diagnosed at age 19. She never felt like there was an outlet for people her to connect with others going through the same thing and where people would "get" what she is going through. Planet Cancer not only provides support and community for young adults with cancer but also advocates for the needs of young adults with cancer out in the big, bad world. I believe wholeheartedly in Planet Cancer and that is why my family's foundation which we created in my sister's memory has been a major donor to PC every year since its inception.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The thousands of registered users on MyPlanet, exchanging support, information and connection.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Getting to attend one of their amazing retreats for young adults!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Knowledgeable, passionate and dedicated
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Reach out to every young adult with cancer in the US, let them know that they're not alone, and help make their voice heard
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
