Work is an important part of life – and not only for the money. Returning to work can help you to regain your confidence and independence and bring back a “normal” routine that gives you something to focus on other than cancer.
Everyone experiences confidence and body image issues at some time in their life, particularly as a teenager and young adult. Your cancer experience can change how your body looks, feels and works and can make things even worse.
Specialist treatment and support for young people with cancer aged 15-25 is provided by the Youth Cancer Services based in major hospitals throughout Australia. Plus, we offer clinical trials run by the brightest minds in Australia which discover new, safe and effective treatments for the rarest and deadliest cancers affecting young people.
