Our Mission & Vision
Cactus Cancer Society’s mission is to provide a safe space where young adults (ages 18-45) facing cancer can connect, cope, and thrive with one another in an online community through creativity and expression. Our vision is to end isolation among young adults facing cancer.
Are you feeling prickly?
Why a cactus society? Like the cactus in our name, the young adults who seek our community are tough; they are strong, adaptive, and resilient. They thrive in unlikely conditions and with this fortitude comes resilience.
Meet our community
See what we’ve made
We provide a safe space where young adults facing cancer can breathe easier knowing that there are others here who understand what they are facing. Our community offers an escape from the harsh realities of cancer, and an opportunity to cope through creativity and expression, and continue to grow and thrive.
Cactus Cancer Society programs are the fastest and easiest way to connect with other young adult cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers.
Be there for that next young adult who is facing cancer and looking for someone who understands. Show them they are not alone.
