He knew this challenge was nothing compared to the battle his dear friend Carly just endured. Carly Collard Cottone valiantly battled neuroblastoma for three years before she succumbed to her disease in August 2002. He wanted a way to memorialize her courageous spirit, her determination and her remarkable strength.

Yes, that's an extended middle finger stamped on the wristband that Kali Korzelius hands out to other Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer survivors. It advertises, a website for AYA survivors that's all about "giving the bird" to cancer.

Megan Johnson

When Megan Johnson walked the halls of Roswell Park last summer, she looked like any other young research student in a lab coat. You’d never guess that she’d defied the odds as a childhood cancer patient 20 years earlier.

Cancer begins in cells, the building blocks that form tissues. Tissues make up the organs of the body. Normally, cells grow and divide to form new cells as the body needs them. When cells grow old, they die and new cells take their place. Sometimes, this orderly process goes wrong. New cells form when the body doesn’t need them and old cells do not die when they should. These extra cells can form a mass of tissue called a growth or tumor. Tumors can be benign or malignant.
