Cancer Babes was started in 2012 when one girl recently diagnosed with cancer made friends with another girl. Sarena had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer in December 2011 and Britni was diagnosed with cervical cancer in September, 2011. Britni was in remission when their mutual doctors connected them. They formed a friendship that helped them both through their respective therapies and from that very special friendship cancer babes was born.

We are a group of young cancer survivors meeting up to support one another through all the phases of cancer. From first diagnosis to years of recovery we are here for one another. We understand that it can be lonely being a younger person diagnosed with cancer. That's why we have weekly meetups and fun outings to show that cancer is not going to beat us! We're not cancer "patients", We're cancer BABES!! We are based out of Oakland/San Francisco and meetup at venue's around there but are open to branching out to other regions too. If you'd be interested in being a team leader in a different location please email Sarena at
