What is YALLA?
We are a community of young adults ages 18 - 40 who have been touched by cancer. We are in varying states of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. But, we are bonded by the unique challenges of dealing with cancer at this stage of life. We are committed to providing a supportive environment for ourselves and our fellow patients to aid in their physical, emotional, and social recovery, regardless of diagnosis or prognosis
"We, the Individuals of YALLA, seek to give support and a safe outlet for young adult cancer patients to speak to their unique journey. Our goal is to provide education and helpful topics to facilitate conversation in order to process the cancer experience. We will cultivate opportunities to work with organizations that support our community and promise to provide encouragement for self-improvement. By creating a platform for teamwork, we strive to cultivate a positive atmosphere for growth and lasting personal connections while balancing life as a young adult.”
