Adolescent & Young Adult (AYA) Program
At MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital, we realize that adolescents and young adults with cancer have unique needs. That's why we created the Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) program - to be a resource for young adults from the beginning of treatment through survivorship.
Our AYA Program has comprehensive medical and support services to keep cancer from interfering with normal life.

Cancer180 is an Anderson Network program that coordinates social outings where young adult patients, survivors, caregivers, family and friends in their 20s and 30s can connect with other young adults affected by cancer.
Kim's Place is a special hangout just for AYA patients and visitors, ages 15 - 30. Come play your favorite music on the jukebox, shoot some pool, try your skills at Hoop Fever, play some arcade games or enjoy some snacks and visit with other young adults.
