Resources for Younger Adults with Cancer

January 3, 2019

Young adults who receive a cancer diagnosis can feel isolated from their peers and out of place in clinical settings where many of those around them are older adults. There are several organizations and support groups whose mission is to help young adults better cope with and understand their disease. Some organizations help connect individuals with peers who share their diagnosis. Other groups tackle topics such as fertility and survivorship. Here are a few:

REACH for Cancer Survivorship

Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults

American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO): Cancer in Young Adults

Critical Mass: The Young Adult Cancer Alliance

LIVESTRONG: Adolescents and Young Adults

Young Adult Cancer Connection

Stupid Cancer

Society for Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology
