Founded in 2007 by a young adult cancer survivor, Stupid Cancer is a non-profit organization that empowers young adults affected by cancer through innovative and award-winning programs and services. We are the nation's largest support community for this underserved population and serve as a bullhorn for the young adult cancer movement.
We support a global network of survivors, caregivers, providers and advocates to ensure that no young adult goes unaware of the age-appropriate resources they are entitled to so they can get busy living. Our innovative and multi-award-winning programs—such as The Stupid Cancer Show and the OMG! Cancer Summit For Young Adults—have brought the cause of 'cancer under 40' to the national spotlight and rallied a brand new generation of activists to give a much needed voice to our forgotten population.
