Never Too Young: Info and support for breast cancer survivors


The Canadian Breast Cancer Network (CBCN) has created a handbook to help young women with breast cancer navigate their cancer journey.

Never Too Young: Psychosocial Information and Support for Young Women with Breast Cancer aims to answer questions you don’t even know you have and ease pyschosocial concerns from attending support groups and finding resources designed for older women.

The handbook covers 16 topics that bring you from diagnoses to recovery such as how to handle specific relationships, to school and work, to fertility, and dealing with death.

Some YACC alumni and friends were consulted and participated in the creation of this resource.
