Our Mission & Vision

We 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. We want to end isolation for young adults facing cancer.

Help us reach our goal of providing 200 builders supply boxes to young adults facing cancer!​
