This past year has yielded many exciting developments at The Samfund. For one, we have a brand
new look! We hope you like The Samfund 2.0 as
much as we do. In addition, our staff has grown to
a team of five. Our family continues to expand with
an influx of volunteer Sambassadors; this dynamic
group is comprised of past grant recipients, other
young adult survivors, and supporters of The
Samfund community. Finally, we have awarded $1.35
million in grants as of June 2015, and are thrilled to
be offering two grant cycles for the first time in FY16.
We asked YOU:

FY 2015
Our Webinar series is still going
strong, with seven presentations this
fiscal year ranging from selecting an
insurance plan, to resources for copay assistance, to rebuilding savings.
We are also continuing to develop
our Finances 101: A Toolkit for Young
Adults with Cancer, in partnership
with Triage Cancer. Over the next year
we hope to finish an interactive
online tool which will provide users
with information applicable to their
circumstances, and will allow us to
increase our reach to young adults
and caregivers exponentially.
Stay tuned for updates!

Letter from The CEO
Dear friends of The Samfund,
We are proud and excited to share our first-ever annual report with you,
highlighting the milestones and accomplishments of the year ending June
30, 2015. I can easily say, without exaggeration, that it was one of the most
pivotal ones in our 12-year history.
From internal growth to external partnerships, we’ve added the young adult
perspective to larger conversations about the costs of cancer. We’ve got
new programs in the works, most notably the next iteration of the Finances
101 Toolkit, in collaboration with Triage Cancer. This online, interactive educational tool will provide young adults with the information they need to make
well-informed financial decisions during and after treatment, so that they don’t find themselves facing
mountains of debt. We are excited to launch the next phase of this program in the upcoming year.
In FY15, we welcomed new staff members and many new volunteers (including 14 new Sambassadors!), and
are grateful for all that they bring to The Samfund. We are on the verge of so much exciting change and
know, with certainty, that we wouldn’t be here without the continued generosity and support of our donors.
It’s because of you that more young adults are finding the support they need to survive and move forward.
We cannot thank you enough and hope you are as excited as we are for The Samfund of tomorrow.
Letter from The Chairman
It has been my deepest honor to serve as Chairman of The Samfund. Working
with our outstanding Board, it is my mission and passion to give back, and provide critical support for as many young cancer survivors as possible.
Over the past 30 years I have been blessed with an incredible family, a
successful business career, many friends around the globe and numerous life
experiences. Many young adults face a very different future. They have tremendous challenges during what should be the most vibrant time in their
lives. With the rising cost of medical care and the demands of balancing health
needs with job responsibilities, this special age group of cancer
patients deserves our attention.
Only through corporate and individual donations will these young adults have the opportunity to live healthy
and prosperous lives. Thank you for joining me in this very important cause.
Best regards,
Samfund Stories
From FY 2015 Grant Recipients
“Before my grant, I had to spend the full amount of my
limited time and energy on scraping by trying to cover
the basics needs. Getting The Samfund grant changed
all of this. I suddenly felt freed from the heavy weight
of ‘survival mode’ that I had been stuck living in. I took
the first step towards days with purpose and room to
move forward.”
“There’s not much financial and social support available to
young adults once they’re no longer in active treatment.
Often it seems we are forgotten about once treatment is
over. I think many people forget about survivorship issues
that many of us encounter regularly, especially issues
surrounding finances, treatment late effects, and overall
quality of life. I strive to not only survive, but to thrive.
Organizations like The Samfund help us to do the latter...
“My grant helped to alleviate some health-related
expenses during a critical time in my young adulthood. By
awarding me the grant, you lightened my financial
burden, which allowed me to focus more on continuing
my education. Since then, I have completed a master’s
degree and began a doctorate. The Samfund inspires me
to help others one day at a time.”
“I can’t begin to explain how grateful I am to have been
chosen to be a recipient of a Samfund grant. I have
struggled to find resources that I qualify for which has
made it difficult for me to get back on my feet. The only
program/charity that has helped me has been The
Samfund and I will forever be grateful for the generosity and kindness that everyone from the organization has
shown me.”

“As a fulltime bridge teacher/player for the past 25 years, I’ve been fortunate
enough to come across many philanthropic individuals and families who have embraced The Samfund after they learn of our existence. Their support, financial and
emotional, has been a source of tremendous importance to me.” Glenn’s passion
“is in continuing to support my daughter’s dream, the one she had years ago when
she started all this. From the day Sam told me she had found what she wanted to
do with her life, I’ve been determined to help make sure it happens. She made lemonade out of he lemons that she was given. I just want to help set up the lemonade

Alumni Leadership Council
Valerie is a survivor of Aplastic Anemia. She received a Samfund grant in
2008 to help with her medical bills, which allowed her to get herself out
of medical debt entirely. She earned an MBA from UCLA Anderson in 2013
and now works in the field of Healthcare Operations. She says, “Young adult
cancer survivors are a particularly vulnerable population, typically having no
established savings and sometimes little headway in their careers. There is no
other organization in the country dedicated to helping young adult survivors
in this way. I chose to become part of the ALC because I realize that the need
didn’t stop with me.”
Kate is a survivor of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After receiving a Samfund grant
in 2008, she began volunteering immediately and has grown into a leadership role within our organization. She graduated from Columbia College with
a BFA and now works in graphic and web design. Of her involvement as an
Alumni Leader, she writes, “I am living proof of the effect the grants have on
young adults, so I want to continue to give back to help people who are in the
shoes I once was in. My grant did so much for me and I am forever thankful. I
will never forget the impact it had on me and I want to give that impact and
help to others.”
Kyle is a survivor of Rhabdomyosarcoma. Receiving a Samfund grant in 2010
to help with his rent enabled him to catch his breath, focus on his graduate
studies and use his limited resources to get health insurance. After graduating with honors from Tufts University, he was able to pursue a career in urban planning. He writes, “As a young adult survivor we are often overlooked
through treatment and after treatment. Everyone thinks that we are young
and resilient, but that resilience often only goes so far. Getting healthy costs
money, and it is more than any young adult can bear on their own. We can’t
solve every problem for our young adult survivors, but we can give them
hope, and provide them with small grants that can get them back on their
Erin is a survivor of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Within a nine month
period, she underwent countless rounds of chemotherapy, full body radiation
treatment and two bone marrow transplants. After completing her treatment
she returned to work and received an MBA from Northeastern University. Ms.
McCabe is licensed as a Certified General Commercial real estate appraiser
and is currently the Massachusetts Deputy Director of Finance and Operations for the Executive Office of Health and Human Services. Erin is extremely
grateful for her survival and volunteers as a patient advisor at the Beth Israel
Deaconess Hospital in Boston where she was treated.
Samfund Babies
The Samfund is proud to distribute a small number of grants each year
to recipients who need assistance building their family after cancer.
Receiving photos like these from our family building recipients reminds
us of the incredible and lasting impact our grants can have. These
photos represent a few of the dozens of success stories of which we’ve
been privileged to play a part over the years.
HP Young Employee Network
In 2014, our Board Chair, Steve Bandrowczak, introduced us to HP’s Young Employee
Network, and we couldn’t have predicted what would happen next. Teams across the
country put their collective arms around The Samfund, and launched what became the
largest single fundraising effort in our history.
YEN members in Georgia, California and Texas decided that they wanted to make a
difference, and what a difference they made. They set a $5,000 fundraising goal to start.
Then a $25,000 goal. And then, they raised an incredible $100,000 for The Samfund.
Thank you, YEN, for the ripple effect you have created, both for The Samfund and, more
importantly, for the young adults who we’re now able to help. You have created
something so much bigger and so much more meaningful than
anything we could have imagined.
Community &
Corporate Partners
We are thankful for our community and corporate partners who have
sponsored events, offered their services free of charge,
and supported The Samfund.
