The Cancer Mavericks EP5: The Young Adult Cancer Movement

Facing a diagnosis of cancer at any age is horrible. But for young adults, it’s just plain different. Not better. Not worse. Different. Those diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 39 are on a planet all their own, often left to fend for themselves as lost voices sandwiched between pediatrics and adult cancer. The consequences of living with, through, and, ideally, beyond cancer carries with it a whole host of unique long-term issues, issues that had fallen under the radar and gone ignored by the system for far too long. In this episode, we talk to a new generation of cancer mavericks like Tamika Felder, Heidi Adams, Doug Ulman, and Lindsay Nohr-Beck, who revived a dying national conversation on cancer survivorship in the earliest days of the Internet. They created edgy websites, forced doctors to listen by creating fertility preservation guidelines, and fought to bring the invisible and underserved voice of the young adult cancer community into the national public spotlight.

Matthew Zachary

My name is Matthew Zachary. I am your advocate.

Why? Because when you enter the "Shit Happens" store, there's no one to greet you. I spent most of my 20s in that store. For those like me, who are lucky enough to have completed their shopping, I believe it to be incumbent upon us to become the greeters we wished we had.

In 2007, I founded Stupid Cancer and gave birth to the young adult cancer movement. The Stupid Cancer Show broke all the rules and gave a voice to millions.

And now it's time to go OffScrip. Join me on this new adventure as I continue to galvanize the patient voice, blow up the status quo, and make big dents in the universe.

After all, we are all very fortunate to not have ordinary lives.
