13thirty Cancer Connect, Inc. is a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2001 following the death of Melissa Sengbusch who was 19 years old when she died of acute myeloid leukemia. Since its beginning (first called Melissa’s Living Legacy Teen Cancer Foundation), 13thirty has become an internationally known and respected leader in the field of adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer because of our strong passion, clear vision, and steadfast commitment to a singular focus – teens and young adults with cancer. Unlike many other cancer support organizations, we concentrate our efforts and resources on a targeted national problem that affects approximately 82,000 young people in the United States each year. As Melissa asked of her mom, we are making a difference. We are making things better for teens and young adults with cancer around the world. 8% from every shirt sold will be donated to 13thirty Cancer Connect. Learn more at 13thirty.org.
