Our AYA Cancer Program was one of the first in the country for teens and young adults with cancer and blood disorders.
About one-third of our patients with cancer at Seattle Children’s are adolescents and young adults. By being treated here, you are more likely to meet people your age who are also living with cancer. Support from peers can help you get through it.
If you need to stay overnight in the hospital, you’ll have a room near other patients your age. This area has easy access to a rooftop garden and physical therapy gym. Shared pizza night is a regular part of our routine.
We work with a teen advisory group made up of patients who either are in or have finished treatment at Seattle Children’s. This group helps us be sure our AYA Program makes sense for your needs.
