Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Support Program
UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the NC Cancer Hospital are proud to offer individualized support for adolescent and young adult patients facing a cancer diagnosis. Lauren Lux, LCSW, director of our AYA program, specializes in working with teenagers and young adults ages 13-30.
Teenagers and young adults have different needs than other cancer patients. Your cancer treatment affects your education, relationships, career, independence, fertility, and more.
The Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Support Program works with patients age 13-30 to provide:
- One-on-one support
- Programs and events for patients
- AYA-specific financial and emotional resources
- Connections to peer support
The AYA Cancer Support Program is made possible through support from the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation.
