This year over 70,000 young adults ages 15-40 will be diagnosed with cancer. Survivorship rates have increased in pediatric patients and adults over 40, but for the young adult population survivorship rates have not increased since 1975. We need to fix this. To raise awareness for this population, the LIVESTRONG Young Adult Alliance has come up with a edgy, irreverent and fantastic campaign called “Break Cancer”.
Break Cancer is a campaign that brings the Young Adult Alliance together with Universal Record Data Base (URDB). URDB is like Guinness Book of World Records meets Facebook. URDB believes every person on earth has potential to be the world’s best ‘something’. URDB’s mission is to become the database where all such achievements will live. We are asking everyone to break records to raise awareness for the young adult cancer population.
Below are some examples of records that have already been broken on Break Cancer.
