Description: The 15-40 Connection recognizes the importance of spreading awareness of cancer prevention and early diagnosis in a population and culture where oftentimes, even among medical professionals, there is the opinion of ìIím/youíre too young to have cancer.î This dangerous preconceived notion leads to a lack of preventative steps being taken and, potentially, a deadly delay in diagnosis. Our goal is to ensure the appropriate medical tests are administered on a regular basis based on age, gender and family history, so that, if a cancer is discovered, it will be caught early and thus there will be a high probability that it can be resolved and cured.
