2016 Take a Bite Out of AYA Cancer Fundraiser is January 23, 2016 Learn More

Fight. Conquer. Cure.

The Steven G. AYA Cancer Research Fund is a non-profit organization. Our purpose is to raise awareness about AYA (adolescent and young adult) cancer and the need for research to find better ways to treat and cure our young people!

Our Programs

Cancer Research

The SGAYA Cancer Research Fund believes that research is the cornerstone to finding a cure! Historically, research for Adolescent and Young Adult Cancers has been underfunded and AYA’s haven’t been included Clinical Trials.

More Info

Wellness

Stress, anxiety and poor nutrition are common among people undergoing treatment for cancer. Patients and their families are often unaware that relaxation, meditation, and exercise may increase survivorship.

More Info

Social Support

It is common for AYA Cancer patients to feel confused and/or isolated after being diagnosed with this horrible disease. They are confused over the medical aspects of cancer, whether or not they have insurance coverage, and whether or not they can maintain their current status as a student or a working person.

More Info

Advocacy

We partner with other non-profits in getting the word out to our legislators regarding the issues that directly impact PAYA (pediatric, adolescent and young adult) Cancer patients and their families.

More Info

Education

The SGAYA Fund financially supports patient attendance at AYA Cancer conferences throughout the country.  Through participation, the patient may develop a better understanding of the cancer treatment process, which in turn may help them make better decisions that impact survivorship.

CANCERCON 2016 – BY DAN DEAN

CancerCon is a set of two paradoxes: the conference operates likes a living, breathing pair of theater masks and you talk more than normal, but need fewer words to do so. If you’re not familiar with it, CancerCon is a three-day cancer jam held in Denver, bringing together over 600 adolescent and young adult (AYA) […] Read More »
