"Cancer as a Young Adult"

Even when young patients survive cancer, its challenges often remain with them for the rest of their lives. Carly Flumer survived thyroid cancer in her late 20s and learned invaluable lessons about communication between doctors and patients. Now 32, she is helping other adolescent and young adult patients navigate the unique challenges they face during and after treatment.

Help create a world where cancer is prevented or cured, and every survivor is healthy.
