Provide travel scholarships to send a young adult to a retreat or camp, where they will meet other young adults from around the country who face the same issues and concerns. They leave sustained by the new relationships they develop, and empowered by the feeling of being part of a young adult community and movement larger than themselves.
Your gift will help us find and bring together young adults to provide each other with critical peer support, independent of their hospital, oncology practice or individual diagnosis. In a safe environment, they will be able to share experiences, thoughts and fears, and make connections to sustain them and help them move on with their lives, in or out of treatment.
Your contribution will allow us to help young adult patients make vital peer connections by ensuring that another young adult survivor will respond to the questions and fears posted daily on the PC website. By welcoming these patients to a community of young adults, our shared experience can empower them as they navigate this difficult new world.
