The Wyoming Comprehensive Cancer Control Consortium (WCCCC) and “Stupid Cancer,” have set Wyoming’s inaugural “What’s Next: Young Adult Survivorship Conference” for March 29 in Casper. Jessica Perez, outreach coordinator with the Wyoming Comprehensive Cancer Control Program at the Wyoming Department of Health, said the conference is designed for young adult cancer survivors, caregivers and others interested in learning more about the unique challenges of the young adult cancer population.

Perez said young adult cancer (age 15-39) is seven times more common than all pediatric cancers combined, with 72,000 new diagnoses each year across the country.

Young adult cancer patients often face limited resources, inadequate support, and a lack of awareness and understanding. Perez said she hopes the conference “will bring the Wyoming young adult cancer survivor population together so they know they are not alone in the battle and can learn about helpful resources.”

The conference will be held at the Ramada Plaza Hotel on Saturday March 29. Registration is free and includes a pre-conference reception on March 28 at 6 p.m. A handful of travel scholarships are available to help survivors attend.
