From Pediatric to Young Adult Patient: The Importance of Advocating for Yourself

The following is a blog post I wrote for Dana Farber’s blog, Insight, about the transition from pediatric to adult cancer care.  Thank you to Dana Farber for letting me share my thoughts with others.

This weekend I will be participating in The Jimmy Fund Walk as part of the Dana Farber Young Adult Program’s (YAP) team to raise funds to support young adults facing cancer.  I have benefited immensely from YAP’s programs.  If you are able, please help me reach my $300 goal to support fellow young adults like me.  You can donate here:  http://www.jimmyfundwalk.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=1119001&lis=1&kntae1119001=C65C576F3D5049FE824EEC0E81112974&supId=426833264&emaillogid=
