Cancer’s lost generation: the teens and young adult’s forgotten in the middle.

While overall cancer survival rates have improved, young people fare less well – and their symptoms are often dismissed.

A new cancer program for adolescent and young adult patients ($2M)

“Younger people with cancer face very different challenges and fears: finishing education, establishing careers, fertility-loss and starting a family. Our new program bridges the pediatric and adult missions to offer holistic care – and access to the latest research and clinical trials – to meet their unique needs.”
