"Hope Always"

“Adolescents and young adults with cancer walk a lonely road, our website is meant to help them communicate and connect with each other during their war on cancer."

The Becca Foundation support group members have one distinct commonality: they are all battling cancer. These individuals range from the ages of 12 to 35 and find strong sustenance in each other. The Becca Foundation knows the value of belonging to a cancer-focused support group and how it can help young people lean on each other for constant strength and guidance.

Eight excellent reasons why 12-35 year olds with cancer should start or find one.

According to Becca’s Support Group Participants, here’s why:
1)    Share triumphs and struggles.
2)    Helps you overcome the challenges of growing up while experiencing the isolation and fears of anyone who lives with the diagnosis of cancer.
3)    Provides a place where you can be yourself and talk to others who understand and aren’t judgmental.
4)    Provides a place to make new friends.
5)    Provides a place to talk about life and death and stuff in between.
6)    Even if a wig falls off, no one cares.
7)    We know we are not cancer, it doesn’t define us.
8)    It’s a place to have fun!

“Adolescents and young adults with cancer walk a lonely road,” says Mickey Kesselman, founder and President of The Becca Foundation. He adds, “The information at our website,, is meant to help them communicate and connect with each other during their war on cancer.”
