We help young adults see their cancer scars in a new light - one that is empowering & beautiful.
Fighting cancer as a young adult (18-35yrs) presents unique challenges - physical, emotional, social and psychological. Due to insufficient funding, research and a lack of awareness, these needs are not being met globally and many of our young adults face great challenges coming to terms with their post-cancer bodies.
From one-on-one photoshoots and skateboard art to rocking their scars alongside rock stars, Scar Stories uses music, art and photography to:
→ raise awareness about young adult cancer;
→ raise funds for specialty care for this age group; and
→ help these young people see differently what most keep hidden following cancer treatment - the physical scars that remind them of a grim, painful experience.
But we cannot achieve our goals alone.
Thanks to our incredible partners, champions, photographers, musicians, artists, volunteers and supporters, Scar Stories is making a difference to the lives of young people dealing with issues most of us, thankfully, will never have to.
