The team at the Whole Lotta Life Foundation are committed to breaking down the barriers faced by young adults in New Zealand diagnosed with cancer, and creating a community of support.  

Young adults dealing with cancer face a multitude of SOCIAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, and MEDICAL hurdles. 

While most other young adults are leading healthy, active, and busy lives, a cancer diagnosis often makes it difficult to keep up socially, academically, and professionally, as well as relate to others. It is challenging for young adults with cancer to find strong, reliable peer support as they face their illness, resulting in feelings of isolation and despair.

Throughout New Zealand we run regional Meet-Ups, yearly retreats and an online presence through our social media channels.  

The Whole Lotta Life Foundation will remain unwavering in its mission to work for and with young adults and their families by offering support, resources, and a community that recognizes the profound effect of cancer on young people’s lives.

It is important to note:

Over the past 30 years:
   •    Cancer incidence in young adults has increased more than any other age group. 
   •    Survival rates have not improved at the same rate as other age groups. 
   •    Cancer has become the number one disease killer in young adults. 
   •    Delayed cancer diagnosis is now disproportionately higher in young adults.
