“Don’t Drown in Medical Debt” – free SAMFund Webinar TODAY!

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) survivors often need redefine, postpone, or miss out on many of the typical young adult life experiences – things like going to college, starting a family, or building a career. Similarly, AYA survivors encounter issues unique to facing cancer that many peers don’t have to – such as dealing with infertility, medical debt, job loss, or bankruptcy.  The SAMFund’s free “Moving Forward With Your Financial Health” Webinar series is designed to give the AYA community the information and resources necessary to overcome these challenges so that they can get back on track.
