Young Adult Cancer Support is a student organization that works to fight cancer through support and service. YACS was started by the Ulman Cancer Fund and the 4K for Cancer to reach out to students on college campuses and encourage them to get involved and give back to the cancer community. YACS provides students with volunteer and service opportunities, and also offers support to young adults dealing with cancer in their lives. YACS holds monthly meetings on campus and works to provide patient navigation, support groups, college scholarships, and service. Volunteer events include visits to Hope Lodges, the 4K for Cancer, Team Fight, and patient adoption.
