You’re in college or you’ve just graduated, and you’re looking for experience that will help you land a job in the daunting, competition-saturated landscape commonly referred to as “the real world.” Finding an internship can be scary, but when done right, it can provide you with an experience that is as fun as it is rewarding. As a soon-to-be senior myself, I took the opportunity to intern at LIVESTRONG for the summer. Suddenly, I feel much less terrified about what lies ahead. In fact, I feel prepared.
There’s never a good or convenient time to hear a cancer diagnosis, but when it seems like you’ve barely started living, it may hit a little harder. Over 70,000 young adults between the ages of 15-39 in the United States are diagnosed with cancer each year. That’s 70,000 people wondering why this happened to them and trying to figure out what to do next.
Telling loved ones about a new cancer diagnosis can sometimes be a battle in and of itself. The news brings with it a variety of doubts and isolating thoughts.
