TCA Partners With Northwestern Memorial and Lurie Children’s Hospital In Chicago

We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Lurie Children’s Hospital and Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. This will help expand the Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer program (AYA) led by Drs. Jennifer Reichek and Stacy Sanford.

Statement by Lurie Children’s Hospital:
This new investment will enable the program to make a significant impact on the lives of this unique patient population by developing a clinical work flow that systematically reaches adolescents and young adults. The donation will also help coordinate comprehensive care for AYA across the continuum of their cancer care, including: long term survivorship, increase age-appropriate psychosocial support, provide appropriate education and options for fertility preservation, and ensure increased access to clinical trials.

TCA Co-Founder Roger Daltrey visited and personally signed the check on behalf of Teen Cancer America.
