5th Annual OMG! Cancer Summit For Young Adults

When & Where is it? March 30th – April 1st, 2012 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada

What’s the deal? The OMG! Cancer Summit is the premiere oncology conference and social networking event for the young adult cancer movement. A program of the I’m Too Young For This! Cancer Foundation, the OMG! Cancer Summit, now in it’s 5th year, has become a pivotal healthcare event that inspires thousands of survivors, caregivers and providers—along with scores of academic, advocacy, research and support organizations—to get organized, build community and unite as one to drive change.

Who should attend? Young adult patients & survivors, long-term childhood survivors, caregivers & supporters, parents, siblings & friends, and oncology social workers and nurses

Why does it matter? 70,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer annually; one every 8 minutes. Young adults (including long-term pediatric survivors) are an underserved age group by way of their sheer isolation and lack of connection to age-appropriate programs, peers and support resources that restore their dignity and educate them on issues relevant to their unique needs.
