2bMe.org was created to give teens access to the information they need to help them "deal" without subjecting them to public support groups that could potentially make them uncomfortable. While browsing the site, users have the option to privately explore different aspects of their disease on their own terms. The site presents information in four different areas: "About Face," "Head Way," "Health Esteem" and "Social Circles," which covers everything from skincare and head wear to advice on nutrition and dealing with friends.
- Planet Cancer
Planet Cancer is a community of young adults with cancer. (You know, that age between "pediatric" and "geriatric," where no one knows whether to give you a lollipop or have a serious talk about your fiber intake.) It's a place to share insights, explore our fears, laugh, or even give the finger to cancer with others who just plain get it. We don't deny the dark side of illness and death here. But we also firmly believe that laughter and light can turn up in the strangest places.
- The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults
Flat on his back, sliding through a CAT scanner, Doug Ulman could see the technician out of the corner of his eye, pointing to something on a computer screen. The realization came quickly – something was wrong. It turned out that a growth the size of two golf balls was wedged in the space between his spine, ribs, and lungs. And instantly, cancer changed the course of his life. Since inception in 1997, we have grown to become one of the leading voices in the young adult cancer community. Visit Services and Education for a complete listing of the support programs we offer.
