Why Adolescents and Young Adults?

Imagine feeling lost, afraid, and alone during one of the most important and stressful points in your life. Each year approximately 90,000 adolescent and young adults (AYA ages 15-39) are diagnosed with cancer, and the future they had once planned for is dramatically altered. Currently, few comprehensive resources are available to help AYA cancer patients and survivors meet their unique psychological, social, and emotional needs. At a time when their peers are advancing their education, careers, and families, AYA cancer patients and survivors face time away from school and work to facilitate treatment and recovery. They often feel an intense sense of loss of their once busy lifestyles, experience social isolation from their peers, face challenges to education and career advancements, have concerns about relationships and fertility, and are overwhelmed by the daunting financial burdens they face. I'm Not Done Yet provides AYA's dealing with cancer the support and tools they need to adapt their once busy lifestyles to fit the complex challenges that arrive after a diagnosis and into survivorship. By bringing together wellness and psychosocial support programs and resources that are specifically geared towards this AYA population, I'm Not Done Yet improves wellbeing and quality of life.

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

Academic Research... studying the transition

of care needs across medical disciplines 

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