What's so different about cancer survivorship when you're a young adult?

Our next webinar will be looking at young adult survivorship, asking the question "What's so different about cancer survivorship when you're a young adult?"

Young adult survivors, (25-40 years), continue to experience complex issues beyond the immediate treatment phase. Workplace conversations, body image issues, gaps in peer support and long term effects from the treatment, can make it difficult to fully articulate how treatment has impacted your life. The developmental milestones that are either delayed, shadowed or challenged by cancer treatment are often not seen or understood by those around the survivor.

 

In this webinar, we will discuss these issues and bring to light resources and strategies that can help young adult survivors to feel less isolated. We hope to normalise the conversation around struggles and successes. "

 

When: Thursday, October 29th, 2020
