About the Author

Anne Grinyer is Senior Lecturer in Health Research at Lancaster University, UK.


'Dr Anne Grinyer's book shows that a cancer diagnosis during young adulthood can seriously affect life experiences and opportunities that don't necessarily apply to those diagnosed at other ages. This book will inform professionals, patients and families, and provides direction for future service provision for survivors of young adult cancer. A much needed insight into the challenges of surviving cancer when diagnosed as a young adult.' -- Myrna Whiteson MBE, Chair of the Teenage Cancer Trust 'Following on from Young People Living with Cancer, this new book addresses the key question of what happens next. Through the willingness of the long-term survivors who trusted Anne with their life stories, this book provides a unique insight into both the character and quality of survivorship. An essential read for all health care professionals, but also survivors, their families and friends, as well as policy makers. This book is an important contribution to the literature in this area.' - Professor Sue Ablett, Executive Director, Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group
