The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults (UCF) provides the opportunity for Young Adults affected by cancer, those diagnosed with cancer or with a family member diagnosed with cancer, to pursue their education. College scholarships are available. Completed applications are due by Friday, March 30th, 2012 5:00pm EST.
The time has come to vote for the finalist videos of our Stop A Doc Contest! SeventyK's Stop A Doc campaign emphasizes the five important questions for an Adolescent or Young Adult (AYA) cancer patient to ask his or her healthcare provider before receiving treatment. With just these five simple questions, we can spread awareness about the AYA cancer segment and the unique needs that AYAs face. This is a big step for a great change in improving the survival rates of AYAs with cancer.
Dr. Leonard Sender, the founder of SeventyK, shares his insight as the Medical Director of the Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Program in the Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children's and UC Irvine's Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. In order to take a step in the right direction, to improve the survival rates of AYAs with cancer, much of what needs to be changed is the training received by healthcare providers to care for their patients.
