How is grief unique to young adults with cancer?
Date:9/12/2012

New Rochelle, NY, September 12, 2012The life disruption and losses experienced by young adults battling advanced cancer can result in a unique burden of grief that is too often overlooked, as described in an article in Journal of Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology (JAYAO), (http://www.liebertpub.com/JAYAO) a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed publication from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. (http://www.liebertpub.com) JAYAO is the Official Journal of the Society for Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology. The article is available free online at the JAYAO (http://www.liebertpub.com/JAYAO) website.

Kelly Trevino, PhD, Paul Maciejewski, PhD, Karen Fasciano, PsyD, and Holly Prigerson, PhD found that beyond the obvious physical challenges cancer presents, this population is at risk for psychological and emotional suffering related to the many ways in which advanced cancer and its treatment may interfere with their educational and career goals, early romantic relationships, parenting responsibilities, and financial and personal independence.

"Patients are grieving not only the effects of their cancer, but also for the life stages and transitions they would normally be experiencing as a young adult, and this article raises the importance of clinical interventions to help these patients cope with the grief associated with cancer-related losses and life disruption," says Editor-in-Chief Leonard S. Sender, MD, University of California, Irvine and CHOC Children's Hospital.
