Every year, hundreds of adolescents and young adults affected by cancer gather at CancerCon for a life-changing weekend.

Digital CancerCon
June 11-13, 2021

The largest gathering of the AYA cancer community is coming to your screen this June.

Don’t expect your typical virtual snoozefest…after a year of online life, Stupid Cancer is ready to bring you a Digital CancerCon that’s bigger and better than before. This year we’ve got more sessions, new fun features, and a few surprises up our sleeves. 

Join us for a FREE weekend jam-packed with informative breakout sessions, inspiring keynotes, dynamic discussion sessions, and fun activities. This is an opportunity to come together with adolescents and young adults from across the globe to build community and end isolation.

CancerCon is my home away from home. It is one place that I feel like me and don't have to pretend to be  something that I am not or worry about being judged by others. My CancerCon community is my second family.

- Jessica
I came by myself and was immediately embraced by this community. It's a safe space that's completely free of  judgement, made up of other people who get it. I've felt more myself in the past few days than I have since my  diagnosis- I didn't even realize how much I needed it! I'm so lucky that I've found my people.

-Christina
As soon as I arrived, I felt at home with no worries or shame. Without this I wouldn’t have been able to find a  strong community and build awesome friendships

That’s not really a question, but we’ll bite! Stupid Cancer is based in NYC and the agenda is scheduled in Eastern Time. We know that’s not convenient for everyone, but we’ve tried to adjust the schedule to make it possible for multiple time zones to participate throughout the day. If you miss a session, check out the recording!
