Adolescent and Young Adult Survivorship Program
A grant from Tower Cancer Research Foundation will provide seed funding for the creation and implementation of a new, robust Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Survivorship Program that bridges the patient journey from the pediatric MemorialCare Jonathan Jaques Children’s Cancer Institute (JJCCI) at Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach cancer program to the services of the adult MemorialCare Todd Cancer Institute at Long Beach Medical Center. Will provide a seamless transition to cancer survivorship care for young adults, as well as provide access to critically needed clinical trials. This grant will help to establish the foundation within MemorialCare to fulfill the unrealized potential of two excellent cancer programs, the pediatric program at JJCCI and the adult program at TCI and provide the cancer survivorship care across the developmental trajectory for AYA patients. This program will also serve as a unique resource within MemorialCare and as a regional resource within the greater Los Angeles and Orange County area.
