At UNC we understand that as a young adult, you have unique needs, strengths, and challenges that don’t look the same for older patients. The AYA Cancer Program’s goal is to work with your team to tailor your care to you every step of the way. Ask your providers to connect you to us for services such as:

  • One-on-one supportive counseling
  • Helping identify the best clinical trials for young adults
  • Problem-solving around school and work
  • Connections to other young adults with cancer
  • Referrals to specialists in financial navigation
