Brock Yetso is the President & CEO at the Ulman Foundation, one of the original young adult cancer advocacy organizations. Borne in the late 1990s, the Ulman Foundation (formerly the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults) pioneered the very idea of adolescent and young adult cancer as a thing, first and foremost, long before the data and the research manifested in practice. I consider Brock a progenitor and mentor who helped me find my place and my voice before Stupid Cancer was a real boy. Thanks to groups like the Ulman Foundation, 25 years later, young adult cancer is now mainstream oncology — but there's still no short supply of new cancer diagnoses each year, which is why their work continues to this day.

Most people don’t know that you’re considered a cancer survivor at the moment of diagnosis. It wasn’t always this way. Sixty years ago, a cancer diagnosis was a death sentence. And if you did survive, you were left to figure out the rest of your life on your own. But some survivors demanded something different, something better. From OffScrip Media, this is The Cancer Mavericks, a deep-dive narrative into the people who fought for better treatment, forced doctors to listen, and pushed America to see the human side of the disease. Episodes of this series will publish monthly through the end of December 2021 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the National Cancer Act of 1971.
