A cancer diagnosis is a life-altering experience for most people, but young adults with breast cancer often face extra challenges specific to their stage of life. As they manage a serious illness they may also be concerned about fertility, raising children, finishing school, managing a career, or building relationships.
About the Young and Strong Program
The program, founded in 2005, is the first and only one of its kind in New England. We have guided more than 6,200 young adults on their journeys through and beyond cancer, offering comprehensive care, support, and education tailored specifically for them.
Visit the Young and Strong website to read information on topics important to young adults, including fertility, coping, sex and intimacy, going to work or school through a diagnosis, healthy living, resources, and more.
