|Young Supporters Board|
The Young Supporters Board of the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center was established in 2006 to introduce the next generation of Alabamians to the importance of cancer research and awareness. The board is comprised of up-and-coming professionals between the ages of 22 and 35, all of whom have been touched by cancer in some way. Several members are survivors themselves.
The Young Supporters Board hosts projects and fundraisers throughout the year, including the annual Cinco de Mayo-themed Fiesta Ball and Sweet on a Cure. The proceeds from these events go toward the board's Young Investigator Grants, which fund the research of young scientists at the Cancer Center.
The board also provides services and activities for cancer patients in both the center's inpatient and outpatient units. Throughout the year, board members visit and talk to patients and provide them with meals and holiday treats.
