When young adults (people aged 19-24) are diagnosed with cancer it comes with its own set of challenges. They aren’t kids anymore but they aren’t quite adults either. Not only is their family life affected, their social life is greatly impacted as well. This is why we focus on assisting young adults too. We have met many young adults battling cancer and one thing we always hear is that there aren’t many programs or organizations that support this age group. We do.
You may remember seeing Brandon’s story a while back. He was diagnosed with leukemia in his early twenties. Three years ago we provided Yankee tickets so he could take a break from chemo and doctors visits.
Today, Brandon is all done with treatment and doing well. Here he is with his mom and sister enjoying another Yankees game this past Wednesday. We LOVE seeing their smiles.
Congrats to Brandon and family. We are very happy to see you doing so well. Thank you for being apart of the LivFree family!
