hey there, i find there's not many young adults on this site... i didnt attend the young adults night but would be great to chat to you! im a career im 24 years old.. its tough being young, it has its pros and cons with cancer...
If you're ever in Sydney on a Monday night you're all welcome to come along and meet others our age on a similar journey. I think (with not too much bias :-)) we're a pretty welcoming/awesome bunch ...
Danny - the night went well. we were only a small group and things were informal, but we had some interesting discussions and I'm sure it will grow with time.
Silentsilk - I know how hard it can be when you first find out about it, things a blur and an overwhelming amount of (scary) information. Particularly with things like treatments, often we hear only the worst of peoples experiences or they're the ones that stick in our heads.
Just know that everyone's journey is different. For example, I had 8 months of chemo and was never sick.
If you have any questions? I can offer my experience and what I've learnt (from experience, uni and a bit of an article collection).
Allicat - what do you want from life?
oh and I'm 24; 4 years into my journey and loving every wonderful breath 🙂
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
