Adolescents and Young Women

Ovarian cancer typically affects women 55 or older.  The challenges of younger women are often very different than those of women who have already reached menopause.  The websites and information included here are generally for adolescents or young adults, but also address issues such as early menopause, cancer/work issues, and fertility/sexuality that can be helpful for older women, too.

Financial Resources specifically for Young Survivors

In addition to organizations that give financial assistance to all cancer patients, there are groups specifically for young cancer survivors.
