10th Annual Young Adult Cancer Conference at Dana Farber – April 6

How does a day spent around some of the adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer movement’s most interesting, passionate, inquisitive and fearless warriors and supporters sound? Celebrate 10 years of coming together in support of the unique needs of young adult cancer survivors at the 10th Annual Young Adult Cancer Conference at Dana-Farber on Saturday, April 6 from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. I will be there with bells and whistles on (and tweeting constantly from @allieemorse #listenconnectshare), don’t hesitate to say hi or come hang out with me at lunch if you don’t know anyone! I’m more than happy to meet and make introductions… we could all use a few more cancerfriends.

Register now. It’s the biggest gathering of young adult cancer survivors and caregivers in New England and a great chance to learn about services, opportunities, and organizations and meet new people. I am good friends with several people I met at last year’s conference! It’s worth making it down to Longwood quite early in the AM on a Saturday for this night owl.

A free, one-day conference for persons treated for cancer as young adults and their caregivers

Schedule:
8:30 a.m. Breakfast and Registration
9:00 a.m. Welcome
9:30 a.m. Keynote Address with Mike Lang, founder of Survive and Thrive Expeditions, 4 year survivor of Stage III Hodgkin’s lymphoma
11:00 a.m. Morning Workshops
12:15 p.m. Lunch
1:45 p.m. Afternoon Workshops
The conference location is accessible by public transportation (www.mbta.com). Free parking is available in the Yawkey Garage (One Jimmy Fund Way). Find directions online at www.dana-farber.org/directions.

  1. Hello Fellow Cancer Warrior!

    My name is Allison and I read your survival blog and it truly has moved me! I wanted to introduce myself and my new t-shirt line to you. I wanted to start a tshirt line because I had a few bad days due to chum and just wanted to scream out to the world how I felt. One night I had a vision to express myself and others on how we felt about cancer! And my dream came true with http://www.warriorteeshirts.com. I am doing something special in the beginning of the line and that is limited editions. Part of the proceeds will go to non-profit cancer organizations. I would love for you to take a minute to look at my line and even spread it through out your friends and family. Im also on facebook under Warrior Tee Shirts. Thank you so much and continue to live a beautiful cancer free life!
