I'm Too Young For This

 - Aug 26, 2007
Cancer is a traumatizing experience for anyone enduring it, and a lot of the time, sufferers are left feeling very alone. I'm Too Young For This is an innovative social networking site that helps to ease loneliness among young cancer patients. If offers a social media environment where the ill can give and get support from others in similar situations. The service is a fantastic way to build strength and confidence, and is a beautiful way in which technology is shaping our world into a better place.

Watch the video for a news report on the social networking service.

"There are tons of awesome support services out there with programs just for adolescents and young adults and we're going to tell you about them because no one else doesâ€"not your doctor, your hospital...not even the mighty Internet. Why? We don't know. Frankly, we don't care. (It's not their fault, we suppose. Besides, who has the time to search? You've got cancer!)

"We don't want you missing out on incredible opportunities like weekend spa retreats, online forums and blogs, social networks, camping excursions, fertility education, peer counseling, college scholarships, financial aid, happy hours and more! (Basically, all the things you never knew you always wantedâ€"oh, and they're free!) What's more, many of the organizations who provide these services were founded by young adult survivors like you so they know what they're doing and can totally relate to what you're going through! So stop searching and start connecting with thousands of others just like you.

"Now when you scream, "I'M TOO YOUNG FOR THIS!", at least you'll know you're not alone. (There's over a million of us in the US right now!) So welcome to your life + cancer; where remission is not a cure and survivorship is all the rage. Now get busy living!"
