Harry and Angie AYA Cancer Research Fund
The SGAYA Cancer Research Fund believes that research is the cornerstone to finding a cure! Historically, research for Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancers has been underfunded and AYA’s haven’t been included Clinical Trials.
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. In addition, many patients and families do not have regular access to foods like fresh fruits and vegetables. Our Wellness concept is research based. Survivorship and quality of life are improved through good nutrition, relaxation, meditation and exercise.
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.
