Being a part of the young adults community provides the opportunity to meet others who have or are experiencing something similar to you. As someone living with cancer, I have found that I have positively benefitted from this. You not only have fun at events but you also get to interact with others who you can relate to and who simply understand how you may feel at times. It's so important to realise that you're not alone.
