Cancer doesn't care how old you are.
This year alone, more than 70,000 young adults will be diagnosed with cancer. While survivorship rates have improved in adults over 40, the young adult population survivorship rates have stayed the same since 1975. Why is the young adult group so often 'Missed' when it comes to getting a timely cancer diagnosis?
To raise awareness, LIVESTRONG and Alpheus Media produced 'Missed', a short documentary that focuses on issues specific to young adults living with cancer.
Filmed at college campuses in Oregon, Rhode Island, and South Carolina.
This film was featured in the Lights, Camera, Help film festival.
