This group faces specific challenges such as infertility, loss of identity and  loss of insurance, increased isolation, and stalled career development  with limited resources. Stupid Cancer helps empower everyone affected by adolescent and young adult cancer by ending isolation and building community so that everyone in the AYA community is supported, understood, and accepted.

Widowed Parent

The Widowed Parent project is committed to supporting widowed mothers and fathers with children. Beginning in 2010 with a support group for fathers who had lost their spouses to cancer, this group taught us firsthand the challenges facing widowed parents. Soon after, we launched and conducted a research study including over 400 fathers. We have expanded our focus to include all widowed parents regardless of cause of death.
