To all young adult cancer survivors, welcome home to the Up Cancer community! You are a survivor, whether you are newly diagnosed, in remission, or at the terminal stage. Together at Up Cancer we educate, engage, and empower young adult cancer survivors across America. Team Up Cancer is an education platform committed to educating and bringing cancer awareness to medical oncology professionals, friends, family, social workers, and insurance companies across United States in order to address various issues facing young adult cancer patients during and after cancer treatment. Additionally, we are committed to helping the caregivers of young adult cancer survivors find the help and support they need.
