Reid R Sacco Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Alliance
Established in 2005, the Reid R Sacco AYA Cancer Alliance is dedicated to a vision of seeing that day when the cancers striking adolescents & young adults are routinely curable or entirely preventable. An all-volunteer organization, the Alliance launches and supports hospital-based comprehensive AYA programs that address both historic and emergent gaps in AYA cancer care, treatment, public awareness, advocacy and professional education. It focuses on: providing specialized and age-appropriate care, treatment and resources to AYA cancer patients and AYA cancer survivors; raising awareness among AYAs, among medical professionals, and among the general public about AYA cancer, its challenges, and the resources now available; closing the gap between pediatric oncology and adult oncology, a gap into which AYAs cancer patients too often fell; expanding access for AYAs to potentially life-saving clinical trials for new medicines, immunotherapies and other treatments; leading the way in developing new and innovative models-of-care, protocols, programs and approaches for treating AYAs diagnosed with cancer as children or as AYAs; and advocating on behalf AYA cancer patients and survivors for the expansion of research into what makes cancer in AYAs different from those in children and older adults.
