  1. 1. the cause
  2. 2. WHAT IS CANCER ADVOCACY? “Making sure the next ‘you’ doesn’t have to go through the same crap you did.”
  3. 3. 2003 2004 NCI Challenge Goal 2015 National Action Plan
  4. 4. 2005 2005/2006 Lost In Transition Year of the Lanceband
  5. 5. 2006 2007 Closing The Gap IOM Whole Patient
  6. 6. Analysis ✴ NCI/CDC: Chronic Condition ✴ Death sentence becomes life sentence ✴ Equal focus on acute and long-term ✴ Cure = Survivorship? ✴ Cancer survival as lifestyle
  7. 7. The Cause Is Born Nearly 70,000 Americans between 15-40 are diagnosed with cancer each year. When compared to other age groups, there has been no improvement in the 5-year survival or quality of life of young adults in 30 years. Young adults also face unique unmet issues including isolation, insurance, fertility, dating/sexuality, financial aid, education, employment and age-appropriate peer support such as social networking, both off and online.
  8. 8. The Rally Cry The past 30 years of cancer ‘progress’ has failed the next generation of survivors and caregivers so there’s no reason to think the next 30 will be any different unless change happens now.
  9. 9. Why? ✴ Dismissed by doctors / delayed diagnosis ✴ Young adults don’t consider self risk ✴ Most likely to be under/uninsured ✴ No clinical trials for young adults ✴ No young adult cancer research ✴ Isolation, depression, low quality of life ✴ Different cancers than other age groups ✴ No screenings or prevention available
  10. 10. Unmet Need To Fill ✴ Improve Survival Rates/Quality of Life • ensure prompt detection • awareness/risk reduction campaigns • medical education reform ✴ Rethink Clinical Trials • ‘awareness of’ and ‘access to” (social media?) ✴ Engender National Movement • ageist bullhorn voice for this population • rally a new generation around it’s own • meaningfully and measurably improve quality of life
  11. 11. What’s Missing? Improving survival rates and quality of life for young adults has little or nothing to do with more traditional cancer research.
  12. 12. Key Players ✴ Healthcare Providers • Oncologists, Surgeons • Nurses, Social Workers ✴ Institutional Settings • National Cancer Institute • University Medical Centers • Association of Community Cancer Centers ✴ YoungAdult Survivors/Caregivers ✴ Cancer Advocacy Organizations
  13. 13. U.S. Population source: NCI SEER 2007, US Census 2008 1-39 40+ 1-39 40+ Survivors 15-39 6% 12% 10% 94% 88% 90% Of the 1.4M Dx/Yr Of the 12M Survivors, 50M YA Americans 6% (70K) = YA 12% (1.2M) = YA 10% Are Survivors
  14. 14. The Solution?
  15. 15. The Mission Empower young adults affected by cancer ✴ ensuring prompt detection ✴ ending isolation ✴ improving quality of life ✴ providing meaningful survivorship
  16. 16. The Vision No survivor alone. The Goal Save more lives.
