Hotline Opens for Young Cancer Survivors

Cancer survivors, 16-39 years of age who were diagnosed at age 21 or younger, now have a special resource where they can ask questions about medical or psychological issues facing adolescent/young adult survivors of cancer. The Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Survivor Hotline officially opened August 16 and also is available to family members or friends (18 years or older) of cancer survivors, and to health care providers.

There are two ways to access the Hotline:

(1) Page 800-604-8215, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday-Friday

Leave a phone number and a provider in the Childhood Cancer Survivorship clinics at UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Asheville, or Wake Forest University will call you back within 30 minutes.

(2) Email  survivingcancer@med.unc.edu

Leave an email address and a provider will be back in touch within 24 hours on weekdays.

The Hotline is funded by a grant from the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research ( http://www.rallyfoundation.org/ ). You can learn more at http://unclineberger.org/yesican/.
