The Young Adult Program (YAP@DFCI) at Dana-Farber/ Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center (DF/BWCC) is dedicated to addressing the unique emotional concerns and needs of young adult patients and their caregivers. A caregiver can be anyone who supports a young adult while they are coping with cancer. Some caregivers are spouses or partners, while others are parents, siblings, family members or friends. As a caregiver, you have an important role in helping the young adult as they cope with the impact of cancer in their life.

YAP@DFCI/Caregiver is our online community created for caregivers. The goal of the site is to provide support for the caregiver in caring for the young adult coping with cancer and also in caring for themselves. The site allows members to share information, learn care giving strategies, understand the unique issues faced by young adults coping with cancer and connect with other caregivers of young adults at DF/ BWCC. This site is open to caregivers of all new, current, and recent young adult patients at DF/BWCC.
