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.
