Adolescent/young-adult (AYA) cancer patients are a psychosocially at-risk group and experience disparities in access to developmentally informed treatment. Although social support has been determined as an important aspect of AYAs’ cancer experience, additional research was needed to describe specific behaviors and actions AYAs found supportive. This qualitative study details how various sources of social support (e.g., family, friends, cancer peers, medical staff, etc.) have been helpful, and unhelpful, during AYAs’ cancer treatment as described by patients and families themselves. Themes and categories within sources of social support are detailed. Future directions/implications for research, treatment, and intervention are discussed. View this paper.
