Stupid Cancer & Cancer Hope Network

Finding hope while facing cancer

The words “you have cancer” are time-stopping and terrifying, no matter how old you are. But hearing them as a young adult brings many challenges not faced by older patients – from navigating treatments while balancing school and work to discussing fertility options while deciding on a path forward or craving independence while relying on a parent’s support and insurance.

Since 2007, Stupid Cancer has been committed to making cancer suck less by ending isolation and building community. Since 1982, Cancer Hope Network has been working to connect survivors and caregivers with patients and the people who love them. Together, we have more than half a century of experience in helping navigate cancer with good humor, honesty and a big dose of encouragement.
