Our program, developed with funding from Teen Cancer America, is aimed at excelling in the care and support of patients at Children’s National through their cancer diagnosis, treatment and transition to long-term follow-up and beyond.

At Children’s National, we understand that teens and young adults with cancer face different obstacles than other young children and older adults. To support AYA cancer patients, the AYA Cancer Program team partners with the primary Oncology team to identify areas of patient need and create treatment plans to help achieve the best outcomes for your child's diagnosis.

During intake, we focus on understanding the unique needs of AYA patients to determine if they are eligible for the following supports:

Patient Supports

Access to Clinical Trials and Pioneering Treatments

Fertility Preservation Support

Psychosocial Support

Educational and Career Plan Support

Long-Term Follow-Up Care
