    young adult patient  

    Cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers face more than medical challenges during cancer diagnosis and treatment. There are a variety of psychological, emotional, and social issues that come up during the cancer journey — including managing relationships, disclosing a diagnosis, working with cancer, and many more.

    Learn about the psychosocial challenges of living with cancer, or caring for a loved one with cancer, in our series of Google+ Video Hangouts, featuring experts from Dana-Farber and patients, caregivers, and survivors from across the country.

    Viewers are welcome to submit questions, which will be answered live on-air. Email questions to social@dfci.harvard.edu or ask via Twitter (@DanaFarber) using the #DFCIhangout hashtag. If you have a topic you'd like to see addressed in a future Hangout, email social@dfci.harvard.edu.
