This publication is a compilation of original writings by young adult cancer survivors. These essays, poems and letters describe aspects of the cancer experiences that the authors have dealt with, been changed by and learned from.
We present MY WAY with the hope that it will help others better understand and cope with their cancer diagnosis or with the diagnosis of a loved one.
Many young adult cancer survivors find great comfort in hearing from other young adult cancer survivors; in knowing that they are not the only young adult facing cancer; in connecting with people their age that have been “through it.”
These writings raise awareness of the needs and emotions of young adults dealing with cancer and of the challenges that they face. They also demonstrate the tremendous spirit, courage and even humor possessed by the authors represented.
