Receiving a cancer diagnosis at any age is a shock to the system. But for a young adult, it is even more unexpected, traumatic, and often finds us stumbling in the dark. Explore the impact that a cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship has on young adults.
We will also review the unique barriers to the young adult cancer population, what’s “normal,” and when to ask for help. Learn some basic coping strategies for dealing with life when it feels like you are struggling just to tread water every day.
Facilitated by Oncology Certified Social Worker, Courtney Weaver, LSCW. This program is in partnership with Life with Cancer and Smith Center for Healing and the Arts.
Registration is through the Smith Center’s calendar page.
