Q. I'm looking for books to read that would be geared for young adults trying to cope with cancer.
At CancerCare, young adults are categorized by those ages 20 to 39. Being diagnosed with cancer at this age can be an extremely overwhelming experience, however; there are many great books and publications out there that can make coping a bit easier.
Take a look at the list below:
Everything Changes: The Insider’s Guide to Cancer in Your 20’s and 30’s by Kairol Rosenthal
Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips by Kris Carr
Between Me and the River: A Memoir by Carrie Host
