Live for Today Foundation is a non profit organization based in Jacksonville, FL that helps young adults with cancer. Our programs create adventure, encourage new experiences, uplift through support, and inspire a healthy lifestyle for our members. According to the National Cancer Institute, more than 70,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States – almost 8 times the total number of pediatric cancers. Cancer interrupts school, relationships, careers, getting married, and having children. We are here to empower young adults with cancer by focusing on living, not cancer.
