National Young Adult Cancer Awareness Week

National Young Adult Cancer Awareness Week

Being diagnosed with cancer at any age can be a life-altering experience, but for young adults, it can be especially challenging. This age group is typically defined as those between the ages of 18 and 39, and you can’t even imagine how difficult this is. They may be transitioning into adulthood, pursuing their careers or education, and starting families. A cancer diagnosis can disrupt these plans and create a great deal of uncertainty and fear about the future.

During National Young Adult Cancer Awareness Week, it's important to recognize the unique needs of this population and to provide them with the support they need. There are many organizations and resources available to young adults with cancer, including cancer support groups, counseling services, and financial assistance programs. But access these services are not always as simple as it seems!

Some of the biggest challenges facing young adults with cancer are:
•    Lack of awareness and understanding from others
•    Feeling isolated and alone in their experiences
•    Dealing with physical changes (hair loss, weight gain, scars, etc.)
•    Worrying about other health issues
•    Renting the diagnosis
•    Having to depend on others
•    Concerns about dating, marrying, having children or dealing with young children

In our video, we had the pleasure of meeting Ithzel, one of the strongest and most beautiful young woman I have ever met. She shared her Cancer journey with us as well as her concerns and frustrations. We are committed to helping make this a better journey and fill it with love and community. By raising awareness and showing compassion, and assistance, we can help to break down these barriers and create a more supportive community.
