The Young Adult Program at Dana-Farber provides emotional support programs and services to individuals 18-39 going through cancer.
Young adults with cancer often face challenges different from those of children and older adults. Our mission is to provide clinical services and programs that validate and support the needs of young adults with cancer. We are committed to easing the emotional burden of living and coping with cancer; empowering young adults to become active participants in their cancer treatment; and providing emotional and social support in the form of educational workshops, conferences, opportunities to network with other young adults with cancer, and clinical mental health services
Many of our programs are open to young adult patients regardless of where they are treated, but if you are a patient at Dana-Farber between the ages of 18 and 39, you can connect with other patients going through similar experiences in our private online community, dana-farber-yap.org. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to the website, where you can share your experiences and learn more about programs at Dana-Farber and beyond.
