what we do
Stupid Cancer exists 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 award-winning programs and services reflect this charter and have been developed to patch cracks in the system and fill in gaps in service. Beyond raising global awareness that young adults can and do get cancer, our brand serves as a bullhorn for a social movement about change; a call to action to end isolation, increase quality of life and improve outcomes for hundreds of thousands.
The Stupid Cancer Forums are your premiere online discussion boards for 1-1 peer support, advice and mentoring for the young adult cancer movement. With over 4,500 active members, it's a great resource to sign up for if you're seeking answers from patients or caregivers like you or just want to help give support to someone who is now walking in your shoes. Check it out at http://forums.stupidcancer.org.
The Stupid Cancer News Feed is a live Pinterest board that aggregates all of the content that comes our way that we don't have the time to publish on Facebook or Twitter. If you're looking for quality curated articles, stories, videos, events and other related information relevant to the young adult cancer movement, check out the Stupid Cancer News Feed" on Pinterest and subscribe at http://stupidcancer.org/feed.
Stupid Cancer Clinic Outreach means that we supply thousands of hospitals and cancer centers each year with our young adult patient/caregiver support literature. We must also ensure that provider staff is aware of Stupid Cancer as a resource and gateway for their population. Tell your doctor, nurse, social worker or patient navigator to contact us and we will mail them out our hospital literature kit.
