Easing the Burden

Cancer wreaks havoc on the entire family, throwing their world into chaos. The Thomas Matthew Miloscia Foundation aims to ease the financial burden of adolescent and young adult cancer patients and their families by being a ray of hope in their lives.

Easing the Burden

Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer patients find themselves in a unique situation that distinguishes them from patients younger, as well as, older. The age range for these patients is 15 – 39; they are not children and many are not yet considered adults. They have unique concerns like:

Cancer is the leading cause of disease-related death in the AYA population and each year approximately 70,000 adolescents and young adults will hear the dreaded words, “You have cancer”. There are three times more people diagnosed with cancer within the second 15 years of life than in the first 15 years of life. In addition to patients in the AYA community that are diagnosed with cancer for the first time, this group also experiences recurring cancers from childhood and/or secondary cancers resulting from previous cancer treatment.
