Stephanie Scoletti launched Young Adult Cancer Survivors (YASU) in March 2020, not knowing the pandemic would hit 2 weeks later, forcing her to make all programs virtual. She successfully pivoted to ensure young adult cancer survivors had even more opportunities to receive emotional, social, and financial support. Cancer is traumatic...and COVID-19 only adds to their trauma. Thanks to YASU, young adults now have a community to rely on from the day they're diagnosed.
John Fahey (YASU board member) and Matt Scoletti (Stephanie's husband) got together and thought it'd be fun to hold each other accountable if John bikes while Matt runs, asking friends and family to donate per each mile they complete.
They and anyone else who's interested in this challenge can set up a GoFundMe page and decide your distance and fundraising goal (i.e. will bike 1 mile per $5 donated with a goal of raising $500 and biking 100 miles for YASU).
Everyone who raises $100 minimum gets a medal!
Join them today to support young adult cancer survivors, aged 18-39 when diagnosed. YASU also supports their caregivers/co-survivors and anyone grieving the loss of a young adult to cancer.
