Because of your support, Naia, a 26-year-old cancer survivor, credited Next Step for that important self-realization on their journey from uncertainty and fear to "I Believe In Me."
"Seeing others go through things and how they are navigating it — it gives you a reference for how you can navigate your own journey," Naia.
As part of the Next Step team, you have made it possible for this year to be our biggest programming year in a decade. You helped us:
✅ Deliver 367 free programs
✅ Launch a new 1-to-1 mentoring program
✅ Take our workshops into clinics and hospitals across the country
✅ Expand our virtual programming to serve more youth in more places
But there is more work to be done. We continue to move forward with aggressive plans to leverage our most impactful mentoring, music, and community programs to serve more young people struggling with serious chronic illnesses than ever before.
Please continue to be part of the Next Step team with a gift to our annual appeal. We aim to raise $70,000 this holiday season to continue to grow our free programming for seriously ill young people in 2024.
