Every hour of every day, ONE Young American is diagnosed with cancer. As a “lost tribe” within our medical community, teens battling cancer are not receiving the type of treatment and hospital placement that aligns with their critical developmental needs. Throughout treatment, these young people are not with their peers, sharing their pain and triumphs. They are isolated, receiving the same medical attention as the toddler or 80-year-old patient next door.
As the leading authority in the field, Teen Cancer America is pioneering change across the country by providing hospitals a proven medical blueprint that includes revolutionary reform in policy, treatment, health management, as well as state-of-the-art facilities where a teen can just be a teen. Teen Cancer America has slated over 50 U.S. hospitals for partnership benefitting millions of young cancer patients.
Within the next 60 minutes another teen will come face-to-face with cancer. Join us today and help transform their lives, inspire hope, and increase their chances of survival.
