According to the National Cancer Institute, 70,000 adults under the age of 40 will hear the words “You have cancer.”
1 in 4 of them has children in the home.
The medical, scientific and social communities all surround the patient with treatment, research and emotional support.
There are support groups and resources available for their caregivers.
