Young adults living with cancer face unique challenges related to work, school, health insurance, relationships, sexuality, body image, fertility, spirituality, and emotional well-being. It can be hard for patients to meet each other on their own, but we are here to help! Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center seeks to encourage, strengthen, and empower young adults by providing support groups and social activities.
Our planning committee – a dedicated group of young adult patients who volunteer their time to inform and coordinate events – meets throughout the year to ensure we have plenty of opportunities for patients to connect.
