Young Adults (18-39) Program

Do you walk into the doctor’s office for your chemo treatment and feel completely out of place and isolated, because everyone around you is at least 20 years older than you?

If so, you are a young adult with cancer.  Young adults, between the ages of 18-39, face unique issues that are not currently being met by the current continuum of care including fertility, isolation, insurance, dating/sexuality, financial assistance, education, employment and age-appropriate peer support including social networking.

Our Life with Cancer Young Adult Program addresses all of these issues and more.  Our meetings are co-facilitated by an Oncology Social Worker and an Oncology Nurse Educator, and the group also meets on their own for happy hours and volunteering opportunities.
