The delay in growing up post cancer treatment as a young adult.
Last updated: August 2022
Growing up is already hard, but when life throws a blood cancer diagnosis while you're still coming into your mature self; it becomes a big wrench! I am sure other AYA (adolescent/young adult) cancer survivors feel the same way. I know there are things I should know as a 33-year-old, but to be honest, I am not aware. I am doing my best to educate myself and learn things. I always aim to be a better me than yesterday and never stop learning. Although the challenges I face are very much difficult, I'm sending prayers up for strength.
How do you feel about your support system?
