This FREE full day Philadelphia-based conference includes breakfast, lunch, and facilitated  workshops ranging from disclosure to creative therapies through which attendees learn about local and national resources, meet other young adults who can relate to their unique perspective, and develop skills to help manage cancer as a young adult.


While we can all agree that cancer plain sucks, everyone experiences cancer in their own way which is why we invite you to stage your own Cancervention and pick from a variety of breakout sessions led by local experts that meet your needs.
