The Boon Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (EIN# 82-1158646)

SERVICES

We are a young organization with many goals. As we continue to grow, we plan to add additional services including grants for treatment related travel, scholarships for “Life Uninterrupted,” supportive services such as babysitting and housecleaning, an annual young adult cancer conference, and more. In the meantime, we are proud to offer the following services to young adult cancer fighters in the Lowcountry.

 

Boon Bags

The Boon Project provides cancer fighting gift bags for newly diagnosed young adult cancer patients to be presented by their oncologist. If you are a newly diagnosed young adult (ages 18-39) and your oncologist isn’t yet connected with The Boon Project, please contact us so we can provide Boon Bags where you receive treatment.

 

Financial Assistance
The Boon Project offers financial assistance grants to qualifying young adult cancer fighters.  The application form can be downloaded here and should be submitted via email to Katherine@boonproject.org 

 

Social Gatherings

The Courage Club by The Boon Project hosts social gatherings where young adult fighters and their families/friends are invited to spend time together in a fun and relaxed environment.

 

Support at Appointments

Young adult cancer fighters sometimes find themselves facing a cancer fight away from home and their supportive family and friends. Cancer fighters without close family or friends nearby, or whose work schedules conflict with treatment times, can request a companion to attend crucial appointments or treatment sessions. No one fights cancer alone!

 

Young Adult Cancer Guide

The Boon Project is fortunate to be able to offer the services of a volunteer nurse as our Young Adult Cancer Guide.  Blair is available via phone, email, or scheduled appointment to meet with young adults facing cancer (and their caregivers.)  She does not give medical advice, but rather helps navigate what can be a very confusing and overwhelming process. Please contact Blair through our Boon Project Director, Katherine Brown at katherine@boonproject.org or (843) 754-1879.
