Our Program offers a monthly support workshop where young adults can discuss topics that are important to them. These topics range from intimacy and fertility, to finances during and after cancer, insurance, wellness and nutrition, and getting back to work or school. Join us each month for a candid conversation about what it means to be a young adult with cancer, and talk to other individuals who really get what you mean. Check out the brochure or patient calendar for more information.
Whether it’s dinner, the movies, a sports game, or a concert, our program offers various, free events for our young adult community. Join the young adult network to stay informed about all upcoming events! Here are a few events to look forward to:
