Torie, 24
Torie is a pediatric and young adult cancer survivor and one of our Boonies! She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma as a teen in 2014 and continued to face it as a young adult. She has been involved with our Courage Club and Fitness Force and was our 2022 Boon Gala Speaker.
She says, "The Boon Project holds a very special place in my heart, and I'm thrilled to be able to serve as an Ambassador this year!"

Jackson, 20
Jackson is the son of one of our Boonies, Allison Mackey.
Over the past few years, he has seen The Boon Project help support his mother through her young adult cancer diagnosis. He wanted to be a Boon Project Community Ambassador to "help raise money and awareness for those that are going through or have gone through this and let them know that there is support for them."  

Give to Jackson's fundraiser!

We believe that community is healing and in 2020 we launched a new program to help grow our community! Our selected Community Ambassadors act as representatives for The Boon Project and those we serve.

Our 2023 class of Community Ambassadors will participate in a 6-month fundraising and awareness campaign from September 2022 to March 2023. They will highlight issues facing young adults impacted by cancer, share resources and information to serve the demographic, and strive to meet fundraising goals to support the programs and services of The Boon Project. They will be recognized for their hard work at our annual Boon Gala on March 24th at the Francis Marion Hotel.


Meet our 2023 Boon Project Community Ambassadors and support their efforts below!
