Cell-ebrate Your Community

This FREE half day digital conference includes facilitated workshops ranging from self-advocacy to creative therapies and instant message networking through which you learn about national resources, meet other young adults who can relate to your unique perspective, and develop skills to help manage cancer as a young adult.
Cell mates (including caregivers, family, and friends) everywhere are welcome.


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 renowned YA cancer organizations that meet your needs.
