Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer program

Like most people between the ages of 15 and 30, you probably have a lot going on in your life—school, your career, relationships or maybe even starting a family. But if you’ve been recently diagnosed with cancer, everything seems to change overnight: Getting healthy becomes the top priority.

Children’s Minnesota’s Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer program is specifically designed to meet the needs of cancer patients between the ages of 15 to 30.

As one of the leading pediatric cancer hospitals in the nation, we’re experts in treating cancer in young people. And, we also know that your life outside of your diagnosis is important. From diagnosis to recovery and beyond, Children’s Minnesota is here to help you make decisions about your care, fight your disease and address the challenges cancer causes in all areas of your life.
