Beachside collaborative event where young adult cancer survivors & their supporters connect, innovate, & spark change for a brighter future.

About this event

Shine a light: Cancer treatment is over, and everyone is ready to return to a sense of normalcy. But some things still feel unfinished. Cancer elicits a new perspective on life, and many young adult survivors and supporters feel inspired to shine a light on the challenges and improve the experience for others that will follow. But how? Where to begin?

Spark change: b-present Foundation invites you to the first annual Spark Tank. In this one-of-a-kind innovation workshop, young adult survivors, supporters, researchers, health professionals, and advocates gather to connect and share their first-hand experiences and insights in a fun and inclusive environment. Together we will explore the gaps and barriers that contribute to social isolation and poor mental health after cancer, and brainstorm solutions that spark improved quality of life and health outcomes for AYAs with cancer.

Save the dates: This fun, inspiring, interactive, two-day event will be held on September 21 + 22, 2022, just steps from the beach in Del Mar, CA. There will be ample time for connection, motivational keynotes, team-building activities, innovating, problem solving, and beach walks.

Did someone say party? Let your light shine at our culminating event—a Glow Bright Beach Party. This fun and activity-filled night will be a chance to connect, share what we learned, and celebrate with our support community. There will be food, drinks, music, activities, dancing, and plenty of time to take in the beautiful ocean view.
