CancerCon is the annual, international gathering of the young adult cancer movement. Now, in its 12th year, CancerCon brings together patients, survivors, caregivers, advocates, and activists, along with oncology team professionals and the healthcare industry through a shared goal of improving young adult cancer health outcomes.


For more than a decade, CancerCon has ended isolation, built community, provided education, and redefined quality-of-life for those affected by young adult cancer. By attending, you will join a supportive network of peers who get it, be able to discuss topics and issues that are relevant to you, and learn from experts in the field.
