This Is How We
Give Back to Our Community
The mission of 13thirty Cancer Connect is to help adolescents and young adults (AYAs) with cancer live their very best lives – TODAY!
At 13thirty Cancer Connect, AYAs build a new peer community of others who understand, in a way no one else can. From the minute AYAs walk through our door, they feel “at home” because everyone “gets it.”
Cancer is tough and we’re here to help through it all. We have programs to meet all your needs – fitness, nutrition, arts, or just hanging out together. We also inform healthcare providers and educators about AYA cancer.

Heritage Christian Stables is a therapeutic riding program for children and adults, accredited by PATH Intl. (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International). With the assistance of highly skilled riding instructors and hundreds of dedicated volunteers, this program provides an exciting opportunity for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual growth.
Therapeutic riding is a holistic experience, impacting a person’s physical, emotional, spiritual and mental well-being. Physically, the rhythmic motion of a horse’s gait mimics the way humans walk, offering disabled riders the freedom to move without the help of a wheelchair, often for the first time.
Additionally, therapeutic horseback riding has been shown to improve muscle tone, balance, posture, coordination, and motor development. Psychologically, it’s empowering for the rider to be able to work alongside a 1,000-pound animal with a few commands and a tug on the reins. The experience helps increase the rider’s confidence, self-esteem, and independence.
