What is 13thirty Cancer Connect?

Our Center is a warm, welcoming space for adolescents and young adult (AYAs) with cancer to build a community of others who understand, in a way no one else can. We’re here to help through it all!

Here’s why our mission matters

Why 13thirty?

13thirty Cancer Connect was inspired by a teen
name named Melissa who knew how to live, even
with cancer.

This year, nearly 90,000 adolescents and young adults in the United States will hear the words, “You have cancer.” That’s 1 young person every 6 minutes whose life is interrupted.

At 13thirty, confidence is renewed, old strengths recharged and hope restored with others who understand, in a way no one else can.

Your impact matters.

Our mission to help teens and young adults impacted by cancer live their very best lives TODAY is possible with your support. Will you help?
