AYA? What does THAT mean?

AYA?


YOU MAY BE WONDERING WHY ON EARTH I AM ASKING SUCH A QUESTION.

WHAT IS AYA?

IS THE WORD PRONOUNCED “AHYA”? …NOPE.

AYA MEANS FOR ADOLESCENT AND YOUNG ADULT. 

AYA REPRESENTS A POPULATION OF INDIVIDUALS FROM 15 YRS TO 40 YRS OLD.

AYA CANCER REPRESENTS A POPULATION OF INDIVIDUALS STRICKEN WITH A TYPE OF CANCER THAT IS OFTEN VERY AGGRESSIVE, LIFE THREATENING AND LIFE ALTERING.

AYA CANCER REPRESENTS 70,000 YOUNG PEOPLE THAT ARE DIAGNOSED EVERY YEAR HERE IN THE USA! 

AYA CANCER OFTEN MEANS THAT THESE YOUNG PEOPLE GET THE RAREST CANCERS AND THE MOST DIFFICULT TO TREAT AND CURE.

AYA CANCER SURVIVORS OFTEN ARE AFFLICTED WITH SECONDARY EFFECTS THAT WILL ALTER THE COURSE OF THEIR LIFE AND PRODUCTIVITY IN OUR SOCIETY.

WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?

HELP US GET THE WORD OUT!

SUPPORT OUR FOUNDATION!

AS WE REACH OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY

AND HELP OUR YOUNG WARRIORS THROUGH

EDUCATION, ADVOCACY AND RESEARCH!

-REMEMBER-

WE WILL NOT REST UNTIL THERE IS A CURE!

FIGHT!

CONQUER!

CURE!!!

 

PS.

THIS WEEK IS AYA CANCER AWARENESS WEEK.
