Stupid Cancer, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is the leader in young adult cancer advocacy, research, and support.
Stupid Cancer Meetups connect you to your local community and peers who understand what you're going through. Meet new friends and socialize with people just like you.
Our Meetups are for all those affected by adolescent and young adult cancer, including patients/survivors, caregivers, and advocates. This is not a typical cancer support group: whether online in a Digital Meetup or out at the bowling alley, restaurant, or park, Stupid Cancer Meetups are a chance to have fun and connect with your peers with no stigma.
Two ways to be part of YOUR community!
