Courage Club

With a cancer diagnosis, you become a member of the club no one wants to join. Welcome to the Courage Club! The Courage Club by The Boon Project is a place for young adult cancer fighters and survivors in the Lowcountry (and beyond) to connect with others who understand the physical, mental, and emotional battle that is a cancer diagnosis as a young adult. Courage Club features a free private online support group, free monthly gatherings and group community service projects. Some events are private for Courage Club members only, while others include the all important caregivers and family members.

A subgroup of Courage Club, the Metathriver Group, meets at least once a quarter and provides support to young adults facing a terminal, chronic, or stage IV cancer diagnosis. This group also has a private online support community.
