Battle Born Thrivers is a closed Facebook group connecting young adults (ages 18 - 39) in the northern Nevada/eastern Sierra region to local support. The mission is to create a network of young adults who have been affected by cancer, as a patient or caregiver to a young adult, to share support and stories.

The group believes that young adults should have access to different support networks that can help to address concerns facing younger populations, such as dating, working, college, marriage, and reproduction, which are just a few young adult life factors that are affected by a cancer diagnosis.

The group hosts casual meet-ups for coffee or drinks on a monthly basis, and additional activities as opportunity arises. Discussion in the Facebook group is ongoing and open.
