While looking through Seattle Cancer Care Alliance’s website and blog, I came across this great post about a local teenage athlete and her battle with leukemia. I found it particularly interesting as it discussing an age group that rarely gets talked about. And while this patient/survivor isn’t a swimmer, she truly is an inspiring athlete.
After viewing this post, we hope that you recognize that Young people with cancer may find themselves with unique needs and questions during their treatment. Seattle Children’s Hospital, one of the @SCCA founding organizations, is sponsoring a special event called “Northwest Regional Young Adults with Cancer Event” May 10 in South Lake Union. Young adults with cancer will share information and network during the free evening event. Details can be seen here: http://www.seattlecca.org/event/northwest-regional-young-adult-cancer-event.cfm
