Young adults with cancer face very different challenges than patients who were diagnosed earlier in childhood or later in adulthood. This group is part of an international initiative to recognize and address the unique circumstances related to lifestyle, work, school, family life, and emotional development that young adults face when living with cancer. This group provides emotional support and an opportunity to meet other young adults receiving treatment.
