WHY AYA?

 

Every year, approximately 90,000 adolescent and young adults (AYA's) ages 15-39 are diagnosed with cancer.  What does that mean to young people at exciting and transitional times in their lives?  Put yourself in their shoes.  A cancer diagnosis too often means:  Education – on hold; Career – on hold; Relationships – on hold. 

 

AYA’s face many other challenges because of their diagnosis and treatment:  financial toxicity, body image concerns, compromised fertility, isolation, and loneliness.  Perhaps the biggest challenge they face is fear about their own future.

 

AYA patients have been a little understood - and therefore underserved - population in the cancer space.  There are few comprehensive programs devoted to this age group, and too often AYA’s are forced to search out resources for themselves.

 

Fortunately, this is changing.  I'm Not Done Yet is committed to being an integral part of the support network for AYA cancer patients and survivors through a variety of partnerships and coalitions in the expanding AYA cancer community.

AYA age-appropriate treatment space debuts at the Cancer Center for Kids at NYU Langone-Mineola

I'm Not Done Yet is excited to announce the opening of the Bobby Menges AYA Treatment Lounge after almost 5 years of fundraising and planning.  Many thanks to all of our supporters, especially those whose outreach immediately after Bobby died provided the majority of the funding.

Bobby Menges recognized and experienced a critical gap in care and support for adolescent and young adult patients.  He devoted time and energy to address this void throughout his own cancer treatment. He's not done yet and neither are we!

what 
we stand
for

I’m Not Done Yet believes that every young patient deserves support as they transition from childhood through adolescence to adulthood.  Our goal is to make sure that happens.

what
we're
doing

Medical Research... supporting

labs studying AYA sarcomas

Space... funding dedicated, appropriate spaces for AYA patients

Programs... addressing the emotional and psychosocial needs of AYA patients
