Young adults with cancer face a unique set of challenges including infertility, loss or lack of insurance, loss or lack of financial independence, re-entry into the workplace, and secondary malignancies. These challenges are frequently accompanied by issues such as feelings of alienation and isolation, depression, and decreased self-confidence.
