Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center
Young Adult Cancer Support
To help keep our patients, families, and staff safe from the spread of infection, our support group will meet virtually until further notice. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in participating.
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.

'It's a relief to talk with people who have been in your shoes'
A group of cancer patients, ages 18-39, has forged a deep connection through the Young Adult Support Program at Simmons Cancer Center. They get together every couple of weeks, socialize, and share thoughts and experiences in a place where "people get it." Most of all, it reminds them they are not alone.
About Our Planning Committee
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.
