Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"
What are some good resources for young adults online?
Tracy Lautenbach, MSW, LCSW, Social Worker in the Radiation Oncology Department at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, responds:
There are a variety of great websites for support organizations, scholarships and financial aid, online forums and chat rooms, camps and retreats, social networks, young adult blogosphere, coping literature, books, films and media resources for young adult survivors. Here is some to get you started:
Online Support Groups and 1-on-1 Support
Young Survivors Camps and Retreats
This question and answer was part of the OncoLink Brown Bag Chat Series. See the transcript: Issues Facing Young Adults After a Cancer Diagnosis Webchat.
