Description:     

Cancer is an illness which claims millions of lives every year. This study explores the
experiences of patients with cancer and their families in day to day activities and with regard
to the illness in particular. The objectives of the study were to understand adjustment in
emerging adult cancer patients, family resiliency to the illness and the interactional patterns
between the family and the cancer patient.The research design was qualitative in nature and
the paradigm used was a social constructivist paradigm. The sample included 6 unmarried
emerging young adults with a diagnosis of cancer aged between 18 to 25 years. The data was
collected with the help of semi structured interviews. Thematic analysis was performed on the
data to get global themes which were factors influencing adjustment in emerging young
adults, factors influencing family resiliency to the illness and factors influencing the
interactional patterns between the family and the cancer patient. The results obtained in the
study can help professionals in the field of oncology to develop effective social support
systems not only for cancer patients but also for the family members and also help in
improving lifestyle behaviors post diagnosis in these two populations.
