Kenny Kane has been working in young adult cancer since early 2010. As Stupid Cancer's second intern turned second full-time employee, he has been along for most of the ride as the organization gained serious momentum in 2011-2012. He has travelled cross-country 3 times to bring awareness to the cause, stopping at cancer centers and doing morning television shows along the way. He has worked to end isolation in young adult cancer by creating channels for survivors to communicate including the Stupid Cancer Forums and most recently helping to develop Instapeer, an anonymous peer connection app. At the age of 17, Kenny was his dad's primary caregiver during treatment for testicular cancer.
