When cancer strikes, life does a 180. For young adults, it can seem like the loneliest time of life. Cancer180 lets them know they are not alone in the fight by providing a social environment where young adult patients, survivors, caregivers, family and friends in their 20s and 30s can connect with other young adults affected by cancer. Support is offered both through social outings and activities in the Greater Houston Area.
All events are free and open to all young adult (18-39) survivors and their caregivers. RSVP is required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you all soon!
Additional resources for young survivors:
