We sat down with Ceinwen Giles – Co-CEO of Shine Cancer Support, a patient-led cancer organization, and a member of the Lumanity Expert Patient Council – to talk about the special challenges facing the young adult cancer community.

While a cancer diagnosis at any age is potentially life-changing, young adults face specific challenges given this is often a ‘building’ time of their life in terms of things like employment and relationships.

Here we share how Ceinwen and Shine are helping this community and what more needs to be done to support these patients at such a critical time in their lives.
