ADVISORY, Nov. 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Stupid Cancer, the largest U.S.-based charity that comprehensively addresses young adult cancer, will visit the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square to ring The Nasdaq Stock Market Opening Bell. Young adult cancer (ages 15-39) is largely unknown in the war on cancer, accounting for 72,000 new diagnoses each year. Young adults with cancer are an underserved population with limited resources, inadequate support and a lack of awareness and understanding from the larger community around them.
Founded in 2007, Stupid Cancer builds community, improves quality of life and provides meaningful survivorship for more than 20 million people affected by young adult cancer.
In honor of all those facing young adult cancer, Matthew Zachary, Founder, Chief Executive Officer and cancer survivor, will ring the Opening Bell.
