Denver, CO – CANCERCON is the experience that you never knew you needed because who the hell thinks about cancer when you’re not eighty years old? Attendees can network with hundreds of non-judgmental friends their

age that they never knew they had. They’re just as mad. And that’s OK. Well, not really. But you know what we mean. It’s the most visible and influential event of its kind for millennial health and the young adult cancer movement. Founded by Stupid Cancer in 2008, CANCERCON unites patients, survivors, caregivers, advocates, and leading health experts to drive global change.


2017 CANCERCON is a wrap, but claim your spot for 2018! For more information, check out:

Who Should Attend?

  • Adolescent and young adult cancer patients and survivors
  • 13-39 years old
  • Adolescent and young adult cancer caregivers and family members
  • Non-profit patient advocate leaders
  • Academic researchers studying adolescent and young adult oncology
  • Pediatric, adolescent and young adult oncology nurses and social workers
  • Industry executives focused on:
  • pipeline access to targeted patient communities
  • digital health, big data and mobile platforms
  • value frameworks and patient-centricity initiatives


Why It Matters:

Young adult cancer (age 15-39) is largely unknown in the war on cancer with 72,000 new diagnoses each year. That’s one every eight minutes. This is not OK! This neglected group—now millions strong—has limited resources, inadequate support, and, more importantly, a lack of awareness and understanding from the community around them. Stupid Cancer acted early by creating an experience that has filled an unmet need and created impressive social buzz and presence in the oncology space.
