Enter To Win!

June 2nd was National Cancer Survivors Day. This is a celebration of life held in hundreds of communities on the first Sunday in June. It is also recognition for those who have survived, inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families, and an outreach to the community. We asked several AYAs (Adolescents and Young Adults) to list ONE WORD that best describes 'What survivorship means to you.' Some of them listed words such as: community, resilience, forward, new normal and several more!

According to the NIH (National Institutes of Health) in the US alone, there currently more than 16.9 million cancer survivors.

Teen Cancer America partners with hospitals to develop specialized facilities and services for teens and young adults with cancer. We develop standards for age-targeted care, improve collaboration between pediatric and adult specialists and enable dedicated research to improve outcomes and survival for our young people.

Teen Cancer America Young Advocate and Survivor, Samantha Stacy, speaker at Prisma Health-Upstate Announcement.

One of our Young Advocates, Samantha Stacy, spoke about the importance of the AYA program and her experience while going through treatment. Samantha was an integral part of the check presentation where Teen Cancer America/First Citizens Bank announced their new partnership with Prisma Health-Upstate in Greenville, South Carolina.

Each year, 80,000 adolescents and young adults are diagnosed with cancer, and in 2015, I was one of them. In March of 2015, I found out my seemingly minor knee pain was actually a form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma. I was forced to quickly leave college and move back home to complete an intense treatment regimen consisting of several rounds of high dose chemo (inpatient and outpatient) as well as a limb salvage surgery over the course of nine months. I went from an active college campus to the adult infusion room at the cancer center…quite a contrast. I remember being there for 8 hours a day twice a week for my outpatient chemo, surrounded by people 40, 50 years older than me, just hoping someone around my age would walk in the room. It never happened.
