Fight for Life

Know the facts about cancer and how to help a loved one who is diagnosed with the disease.

Young people, those in their teens, 20s and 30s, account for 72,000 cancer diagnoses each year. That’s one diagnosis every eight minutes, and seven times more than cancer in children.

Despite the numbers, people in this age group are usually lumped in with older people when it comes to research and care — but younger people often have different lifestyles than older patients and that means their care, and concerns are different. What’s more, screening for the kind of cancer that usually affect younger people are not often routine.

One group of young survivors is working to change that by raising awareness and lending their support to those who have found themselves facing a frightening disease.

Watch the story of one young person below, and take the quiz to get the facts on how you can help if someone you care about is diagnosed with any disease.
