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.

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.
