Young Adult Oncology Group
Support and resources for young adults with cancer.
Contact Kristin Bingen, PhD, (414) 456-4148, for information on the Young Adult Oncology Group and upcoming events.
What is the Young Adult Oncology Group?
The Young Adult Oncology Group connects survivors who have received or currently are receiving cancer treatment. The group's mission is to provide support, education and resources for young adult cancer survivors in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
What does the group do?
The group meets monthly to share experiences and plan activities, such as social, recreational and other gatherings to form a community of young adults who have been impacted by cancer. This program also pairs a young adult with someone who currently is dealing with cancer to provide peer support, advice and comfort under the supervision of qualified staff.
Who can participate?
This group is open to anyone who is:
- Between 18 and 39 years of age.
- On or off cancer treatment.
- Wants to encourage empowerment through education and support.
We welcome all young adults, regardless of where they are or were being treated. Participants also can bring a guest.
When does the group meet?
Group meetings are held the second Tuesday of most months from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. In these meetings, participants share experiences and upcoming events. Social events typically alternate with meeting months.
