STUPID CANCER: The voice of Young Adult Cancer
Young adult cancer (age 15-39) is largely unknown in the war on cancer with 72,000 new diagnoses each year. That's one every eight minutes. This is not OK! This neglected group—now millions strong—has limited resources, inadequate support, and, more importantly, a lack of awareness and understanding from the community around them!
Whether you are newly diagnosed, past the 5-year mark or had cancer 20 years ago, you have the right to survive with dignity and quality and be treated age-appropriately every step of your journey. Being disease-free does not equate to "cure" and when the doctor says, "go home," that's not the end of the story.
Below you will find IG's to organizations that offer excellent direct support services for young adults in the six most requested key areas. For more comprehensive help, google each organization's direct website links!
