More than one million people living now were diagnosed with cancer as young adults and, with a 5-year survival rate reaching more than 80%, that number is likely to grow in the coming years. This Should Not Be Happening: Young Adults With Cancer offers information and insight on a broad range of issues affecting young people with cancer.
Written for a younger audience, this new book tackles tough issues head-on and in language that is accessible to the young adult reader. The book is divided into three sections, being sick, being a person, and being an adult, and intermingles facts, figures, and details with real narrative from real young people with cancer. Share this book with any young adult with cancer in your life as well as their caregivers, family, and loved ones.
