Narrative

At Next Step we believe that if you empower seriously ill young people with the right tools and knowledge they will begin asking "Whats Next?" instead of "Why me?"  We serve teens and young adults with life-threatening illnesses, including cancer, HIV, sickle cell disease, and rare genetic diseases.

Leadership training, advocacy and transition to adult healthcare. This is a 3 day program for teens and young adults (ages 16-26) who have metabolic and other genetic disorders. Young people with PKU, galoctosemic, neurofibromatosis and other conditions meet together to share experiences and learn ways to build leadership, advocacy and life skills.
