This Should Not Be Happening: Young Adults With Cancer
What do young adults with cancer need to live full and fulfilling lives?
That is the question the latest book from Anne Katz sets out to answer. More than one million people living now were diagnosed with cancer as young adults and, with a five-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 tries to make sense of a situation that for many young people doesn't make any sense at all. Written for a younger audience, this new book tackles tough issues head-on and in language young people will understand. From dealing with medical professionals to handling going back to work and school, This Should Not Be Happening offers information and insight on a broad range of issues affecting young people with cancer.
Share this book with any of your young adult patients with cancer or refer this book to anyone who is working with a young adult patient population or has a young adult with cancer in their lives.
