When I began to search for an outlet to be proactive in the fight against cancer, I explored several options, but none seemed to offer the kind of involvement I was looking for. There are hundreds of groups and organizations that benefit cancer, but I found very few that harness the energy and desire of young people who want to do more than volunteer a few hours or write a check. YTAC is designed to reach out to all young people who want to be more active in fighting all kinds of cancers. There are obvious limitations to targeting young people in terms of time and resources, but YTAC is set up to be more of a grassroots organization whose success depends on size and motivation. YTAC is run 100% by its members, a group of highly motivated young professionals, who are committed to raising money to fight the many kinds of cancer that have affected their loved ones.
