THE STORY:

For everything I have been given, I am so thankful.

I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer June of '13 and am currenly undergoing treatment.  With the overwhelming support of my friends and family, I'm going to live a LONG and HEALTHY life. It makes me get all mushy just thinking about everything you have done for me already.  I'm truly humbled every day by you.  I love you all so very much.

STUPID CANCER wrote -

Young adults, a largely unknown group in the war on cancer, account for 72,000 new diagnoses each year. That's one every eight minutes. Young adults (including long-term survivors of childhood cancer) are an underserved age group by way of their sheer isolation and lack of connection to age-appropriate programs, peers and support resources that restore dignity and connect them to relevant tools to get busy living.   Various reasons and circumstances can cause young adults diagnosed with cancer to feel isolated or unsupported. The OMG! Summit helps those young adults to find other people just like them in a weekend of healing, education and community.

The OMG! Cancer Summit is the premier oncology conference and social networking event for the young adult cancer movement. The signature program of Stupid Cancer, the OMG! Cancer Summit, now in its 7th year, has become a pivotal healthcare event, converging several key industry sectors and mobilize thousands of patients, survivor and caregivers around the world to get organized, build community and unite to drive change.

Join our team and support our efforts to ensure that young adult survivors get the chance to attend this event and participate in a life-affirming weekend of support, education, community and hope.

Stupid cancer. Survivors rule.

Here is what participants have said about this event in the past:

“I had the single most memorable time of my life at the OMG! Cancer Summit. Thank you so much for changing my life.”

“There are no words to adequately describe how amazing it is to be in a room filled with hundreds of other people who ‘get it.’”

“The OMG! Summit taught me to keep fighting, be my own advocate and never give up, no matter what the doctor says.”
