I’m All Alone

Welcome to the club you didn’t ask to join. We know you’re pissed. And that’s OK. We’ve been there, too. Stupid Cancer connects you with your community and strives to make it all suck a little less.

Whether you are a patient, caregiver or family member, newly diagnosed, living with metastatic disease or several years out from diagnosis, Stupid Cancer is here for you. We believe that you have the right to survive with dignity and quality and be treated age-appropriately every step of your journey. Being disease-free does not equate to "cure" and when the doctor says, "go home," that's not the end of the story. Join us.
