Young Texans Against Cancer

is a network of motivated young professionals collectively working together to raise awareness and funds to support the local Dallas cancer community. The Dallas chapter was established in 2007, as part of a statewide organization, and in 2019 became an independent organization.

Who We Are

Young Texans Against Cancer (YTAC) was established in 2001 by a group of young individuals in the Houston area. The Founding Members had something in common: Cancer. Some had personally battled cancer while others witnessed loved ones struggling with the illness. Inspired by these struggles, the Founding Members created YTAC to increase cancer awareness among their generation of young professionals. Since its inception, YTAC Dallas has raised over $1.8 million in support of the fight against cancer. 

What We Do

It’s simple – we raise money, to give money. YTAC raises hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, with the single goal to give back to local beneficiaries. Our funds are raised through a variety of efforts including our signature events, membership activities, generous donors and corporate sponsors.
