Sy’s Fund is here to give young adults struggling with cancer something to help them through the everyday challenges of their illness. We provide gifts that have nothing to do with cancer and offer some light in a time fraught with uncertainty. Young adults are often left behind when it comes to extra assistance to help them through cancer, despite the fact that more than 72,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer each year in the US.
