Having a program for teens who are going through something as hard as cancer is crucial, as you get to meet other teenagers and individuals who are going through the same thing you're going through. When the Teen Lounge was open during my treatment, it felt so much different than the confining and stomach churning hospital rooms that we grew so accustomed to. This lounge helped me feel as if we were just hanging out and not going through something so difficult.
