This past weekend the IA crew attended the 3rd Annual OMG Summit, sponsored by I’m Too Young For This! Foundation for young adults (one of our advocacy partners).
The summit aimed to bring together advocates from all over the country for a mindshare around topics such as social media advocacy, oncofertility, employment/insurance and more. Panelists included Jonny Imerman, Brad Ludden (First Descents), Matthew Zachary and Jack Bouffard (iy), Adam Ostrom (Editor of mashable.com), as well as representatives of several additional charities, health care providers and writers.
Through this networking event, we were able to register new survivors who can now share their knowledge and experience with others who are fighting a similar battle. As young adults are the most underrepresented demographic in the cancer community, this is a huge win!
