Welcome to Young Texans Against Cancer

Young Texans Against Cancer (YTAC) was established in 2001 by a group of forty-four young individuals in the Houston area. The forty-four Founding Members have something in common: Cancer. Some have personally battled cancer while others have witnessed loved ones struggling with illness. Inspired by these struggles, the Founding Members created YTAC to increase cancer awareness among the generation of 22-40 year olds. In January of 2007, a dedicated group of young people started our second chapter in Austin and have continued to spread the ideas and dedication on which YTAC was founded. In 2008, another group of passionate young Texans have kicked off our Dallas chapter and will continue the overwhelming success both Houston and Austin have reached. In January of 2009, a YTAC chapter was founded in San Antonio, bringing YTAC to the 4 largest cities in Texas.
