You’ve got a wishlist?!

Ever find yourself thinking…goodness, what’s an easy way for me to give back? Well, we have an easy answer for you! We have a wishlist where you can buy tangible supplies for upcoming programs!

On the wishlist, you can see supplies that will be used in future programs and how many of each of those supplies we’ll need. Then, you take it from there! Able to buy a single item, awesome, THANK YOU! Able to buy several things, awesome, THANK YOU! Everything purchased from the wishlist will be sent to a young adult facing cancer while they take part in a program. You’ll have supplied everything they need for the craft, art, or activity while they experience a supportive community and learn to thrive through cancer.

We’re Hiring!

It has been my very extreme pleasure to watch this organization grow from the very start of an idea to a full-fledged 501(c)3 with over 20 programs helping reduce feelings of anxiety, depression, psychological distress, and loneliness, and serving thousands of young adults facing cancer every year.

Interested in joining our team and positively impacting young adults facing cancer? Have some professional fundraising experience? We’re hiring for a Development Coordinator and we’d love you to apply! We’re looking for someone with a passion for development, interested in working to raise essential funds and build a more supportive and united community for young adults facing cancer. We are a fully remote team and are excited to bring someone new on board!
