How it all Started
When our founders found themselves sitting in the middle of chemotherapy treatments just as Covid-19 broke out, they knew they weren't alone. Since they were blessed with undying love and support from day one of their journey, they made it their mission to provide the same support for those individuals and families that are currently living that same nightmare. We are here to join the fight to provide additional support for AYA cancer patients and their partners, caretakers, and families during their journey. Whether it be financially, emotionally, or otherwise, we will do anything in our power to help our brothers and sisters not only survive cancer, but thrive in their new lives afterwards.
What does AYA mean? Great question.
AYA is an acronym for Adolescent and Young Adult, meaning between the ages of 18-29.
Nobody is ever ready for cancer. AYA patients are in one of the most critical and challenging times in their lives before a cancer diagnosis gets throw into the mix. Usually, they are old enough to be on their own, but still not quite established in their lives and careers. A lot of the time, they may have moved away from home already, or may not have a family to rely on during their experience. That's where we come in. Since we have walked in those very same shoes, we want every AYA cancer patient, their partners, caretakers, and families to know that we have their backs however we can. Being diagnosed is earth-shattering, but watching your closest loved one go through the pain of cancer can be just as devastating to the soul. We are here for you, too. We are all in this together.
