Planet Cancer, a young adult cancer network for patients, received $9,000 for a new program, The Austin Young Adult Network. This program will develop a network of peer support and a psychosocial safety net for young adults in our own backyard using monthly social networking opportunities in conjunction with an online listserv group. It will serve as a strong local network with both formal and informal avenues of support for young adults with cancer. Their annual fundraiser, The Flamingo Party is coming up this spring. YTAC – Austin will participate and put together a YTAC Team of Flockers!
