OHSU

Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Oncology Program

Cancer doesn’t care how old you are, but at OHSU, we do. We’re the only program in Oregon exclusively for those diagnosed with cancer between the ages of 15 - 39. Knight Cancer Institute provides cancer treatment for teens and young adults.

About AYA - Adolescents and Young Adults with Cancer

Teenagers and young adults have different needs than other cancer patients. Your cancer treatment affects your education, relationships, career, health insurance, independence and fertility at a time when these are crucial to your financial and emotional well-being.
