CancerCare is a 79-year-old national organization headquartered in New York City, providing free, professional support services to anyone impacted by cancer.
CancerCare’s Young Professionals Committee (YPC) is considered CancerCare’s junior board, and works closely in partnership with key stakeholders within CancerCare and external partners to expand outreach, raise funds and realize strategic initiatives. YPC serves as an opportunity for leadership volunteers 40 and under to engage in the community-at-large and spearhead initiatives and fundraising events that support young adults impacted by cancer.
The committee is comprised of 20 core members and is growing steadily. These emerging leaders represent a variety of diverse industries and companies including Amazon, Point72 Asset Management, Bristol Myers Squibb, NBCUniversal, Lumanity, Flatiron Institute and more.
Together with YPC members and CancerCare leadership, we focus on the direction, priorities and initiatives each year. The committee elects officers for the roles of Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary, which are limited to two-year terms. The committee meets quarterly on an as-needed basis throughout the year.

Thank you to everyone who supported the YPC’s 6th Annual Fundraising Event on June 8, 2023 and made it a huge success. The goal for the evening was to raise equivalent of four (4) YPC Scholarship grants and, thanks to all of our sponsors, donors and guests, we not only met our goal but doubled it!
Special thanks to the YPC for their hard work in making this event a resounding success.
We look forward to seeing you all next year in June. Please contact Eunice E. Hong, Director of Philanthropy, at email@example.com if you have any questions or would like to get involved.
