Takeover Weekends

In 2023, Stupid Cancer introduced our “Takeover Weekend” program to build community locally, as well as offer enhanced in-person social support and resources to individuals at every stage of their cancer journey.

This weekend of social and educational events is designed specifically for Adolescents and Young Adults (AYAs) to make cancer suck less. These events are open to AYA patients and survivors, their families, caregivers, and service providers. Coming to a city near you!
