BAYS is turning 20: Let’s celebrate!

Since its founding, BAYS has helped well over a thousand people navigate the unique challenges that young survivors face to break the isolation that comes with this diagnosis. This year, we’re bringing together our members and supporters to celebrate two decades of perseverance at the BAYS’ Superbloom Soirée: 20th Anniversary Party and Fundraiser.


The Superbloom Soirée is more than a fundraiser. While twenty years is a milestone worthy of celebration for any nonprofit, it is an even bigger accomplishment for a fully volunteer- and survivor-led organization. The many donations from our network of supporters, a shared commitment to “pay it forward” by members stepping up to lead, and a community built on compassion has allowed BAYS to persist in spite of the collective hardships our members face. Now that is worth celebrating.


The Superbloom Soirée is a time to come together as a community to celebrate our wins, look back and reflect on what we have been through and how far we have come, and remember those we have lost along the way. We hope that you will join us on Saturday, October 21st, for this exceptional event.

Help us hit our $100,000 fundraising goal!

BAYS is an entirely volunteer- and survivor-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Most of the BAYS budget comes from donations, and we have set a $100,000 fundraising goal for this event. This funding ensures that we can serve more than 100 new members who join BAYS every year while providing meaningful programming for all our members for years to come.

A BIG Thanks to our Sponsors!

We would like to send a big heart-felt thanks to all the BAYS members, supporters, businesses, organizations, and others who have stepped up to support the Superbloom Soirée through donations for our silent auction and raffle and through volunteering their services on this important day.
