Inform Young Adults
20 cancer lectures
Cancer is something that can strike anyone at any age. This includes vibrant young adults who are touched by cancer in many phases: those who have the disease, those whose parents and siblings have the disease, and those who have survived cancer and are living with the psychological implications and the long-term physical effects of treatments. A cancer diagnosis can radically change a young person’s life, leaving that person grappling with new questions and struggles.
These lectures enable young adults to acquire new skills, tools, information and techniques to learn how to live with cancer. Through this learning, one will experience an increase in a sense of control of one’s life and ultimately deepen one’s emotional and social well-being. Young Adults will also bond and build mutual social and emotional support together by participating in these lectures together as a peer group. The lecture topics will be specific to this particular group and could cover topics ranging from Cancer and the Workplace to Sexuality to Nutrition.
