FAQ: Surviving Cancer Under 40

Diagnosis and treatment for cancer as a young adult can bring unique practical and emotional concerns about such things as fertility, dating, family relationships, careers, fear of recurrence, treatments, and financial strain.

Join us for a free patient education workshop for people living with cancer, their families, friends and healthcare professionals on the distinct challenges these young patients face.
