Cancer In Young Adults Is Focus Of New Nationwide Study To Be Led By Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Survivorship Program

Cancer is a leading cause of death among young people in the U.S., but outcomes and survival rates for this group have not improved despite decades of advancements in cancer prevention, early detection and treatment. Young-adult survivors typically cite challenges such as physical limitations, infertility, fear of cancer recurrence and discrimination in employment and work benefits.

Psychosocial impacts of cancer treatment are also a major concern for young adults, said Kelly Ambrose, Fred Hutch-based project manager for the study. "Young adults commonly worry about cancer affecting their ability to connect with other people," she said. "From maintaining social networks to dating, marriage and having kids, there are many big life decisions that impact this population."

The Survivorship Clinic at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, the Hutchinson Center's treatment arm, addresses many of the problems that young adult cancer survivors may face after therapy ends. To learn more about Fred Hutch survivorship research and resources for young adults or to schedule a clinic visit, call 206-288-1024, email or visit

At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch's pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer with minimal side effects. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation's first and largest cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women's Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Private contributions are essential for enabling Fred Hutch scientists to explore novel research opportunities that lead to important medical breakthroughs.
