Stage IV Breast Or Prostate Cancer?

treatment access platform

Lacuna Loft is partnered with a company that is changing the landscape of how cancer patients access treatment options. The company was founded by a radiation oncologist and a pathologist, they have young adult cancer survivors on their team, and they help patients with Stage IV breast or prostate cancer identify their unique clinical trial options at top cancer centers in the United States. For a limited time, the company is offering this service at no cost to patients with Stage IV breast or prostate cancer in the Lacuna Loft community.

If you’re interested in learning more, please fill out this form and a member of their team will reach out to you to set up a time for a call where they will share more about the company and how they can help.

Things have been happening in the month of June and so much is about to happen in the coming months.  More Creative Workshops, more YAC Hangouts (July 6th and July 19th this month!), a new program, more Outreach, more Book Club, more more more more more!

Have A Captivating Weekend

This week has caught up with me….first it was Monday and then, POOF, Friday!  This weekend Lacuna Loft welcomes a new face to our Board of Directors!  In the next few weeks, I’ll be introducing them to you all.  You get to hear from me a lot, and some of you are even fairly familiar with parts of my story, but I am not the whole team at Lacuna Loft anymore.  Our Board of Directors meets each month and helps Lacuna Loft kick butt and take names!

Lacuna Loft is also forming two advisory boards….one compiled of young adult cancer survivors and caregivers, and the other compiled of healthcare professionals.  I’ve spoken with a few people already, but if you are reading this and start thinking, “hey…I want to become more involved and give that a try!” email me and I’ll send you more info!  (

Have you filled out our easy-peasy ‘Happy Birthday Lacuna Loft’ survey ?  Your feedback is so very appreciated!  🙂  It will only take a few minutes of your time!

Here are some captivating weekend links from around the interwebs…
