Our Mission

Increasing survival and improving the lives of adolescent and young adults with cancer by transforming hospitals to better serve their needs.


That every adolescent and young adult diagnosed with cancer has access to age-appropriate, specialized AYA programs and space no matter where they are treated in the US.

Who We Are

Every adolescent and young adult (AYA) that gets diagnosed with cancer in the United States deserves access to specialized clinical care and support services that improves their survival and quality of life during and after treatment. Teen Cancer America provides the expertise that hospitals and healthcare professionals require to understand the unique needs and nuances of AYA cancer care. We are the only organization that offers this specialized education, guidance, and support. We help health systems develop age-specific programs that restructure the health system to best support the currently underserved population.
