On October 7, 2022, representatives from the DCI Teen and Young Adult Oncology Program (TYAO) joined the I'm Not Done Yet Foundation in ringing the opening bell at Nasdaq in New York City.

The Foundation, which was started by the parents of Bobby Menges — a Duke student who succumbed to brain cancer at age 19 — is an important TYAO partner; supporting a peer-to-peer support program called “Bobby’s Coaches” as well as helping young cancer patients pay for fertility preservation services. Menges would have been 25 on October 21.
