Stupid Cancer helps to empower everyone affected by adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer by ending isolation and building community.

Working in the United States for over a decade, Stupid Cancer offers a menu of in-person and digital programming designed to build community and connect this population to age appropriate resources so they can GET BUSY LIVING. Since its founding in 2007, Stupid Cancer has succeeded in providing access to the life changing psychosocial support the AYA community needs and deserves. At present, Stupid Cancer has grown into an online community of nearly 400,000 cancer survivors, patients, caregivers, and AYA stakeholders.
