Be there for that next young adult who is facing cancer and looking for someone who understands. Show them they are not alone.
Cactus Cancer Society, formerly Lacuna Loft, is the only organization offering diverse online support programs regardless of diagnosis and regardless of where these courageous young survivors live, allowing unparalleled accessibility to survivorship support. Each year, 80,000 young adults (ages 18-39) are diagnosed with cancer and the future they had once planned for is dramatically altered. Suffering from often extreme isolation, these young adults need connection to one another, their concerns to be validated, and a safe space to process their new normal. Reducing isolation, and offering social interaction and creative opportunities have been shown to increase quality of life.
Cactus Cancer Society is a community funded charity that provides all programs at no charge to young adults facing cancer.
