I see that you were very young when you were diagnosed. We are having our National Conference in Baltimore in July. One of the topics that we are going to be discussing will be focusing on those patients diagnosed under the age of 50. We would love for you to come! Here is the link to the conference for more information: http://www.ccalliance.org/nationalconference/index.html
We also have our Undy 5000 event held in Philadelphia on September 8th. It is a 5k run and a one mile walk. It is a great fundraiser for our organization in addition to recognizing survivors and raising awareness for screenings. I hope you are able to come out. It is an experience that you will never forget. Here is the link for more information: http://support.ccalliance.org/site/PageServer?pagename=undy_landing
Again, it is great to have you here. Please let us know if you need anything.
