In his new mini-documentary AM10: THE LONG WAY BACK HOME, Andrew McMahon talks about his journey in dealing with the hurdles of recovery post-cancer.  “You start by getting your body better but nobody prepares you for what it does to your mind,” states McMahon. AM10: THE LONG WAY BACK HOME which premiered on VEVO last week, comes in the wake of McMahon’s 10th Anniversary of being cancer free and establishing the Dear Jack Foundation which advocates for and supports initiatives that benefit young adults diagnosed with cancer. Hearing the words, “you have cancer” for the first time doesn’t prepare adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer survivors for all that is to follow in the wake of those three words. Physical, emotional and financial hardships often persist for years after treatment and without protocols or resources that specifically address the needs of this populationWatch the video above.

Recently, Dear Jack Foundation initiatives have included bone marrow donor drives at Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness concerts, which have to date resulted in 41 matches, college scholarship programs for cancer survivors and funding adventure camps for patients and survivors. The Dear Jack Foundation is entering an exciting phase this year as they begin to author and implement entirely Dear Jack branded activations. These programs include young adult survivor workshops focusing on yoga and meditation and a ‘Life List’ program where we will work closely with patients in treatment to help them attain dreams that cancer has put just out of reach. For more information on the Dear Jack Foundation visit
