Lymphoma Canada Launches the Adolescents and Young Adults Program

Lymphoma is the leading cancer diagnosed amongst adolescents and young adults (AYAs) between the ages of 15 and 39. In support of this often overlooked patient population, Lymphoma Canada is launching the Lymphoma AYA Program to ensure the health and well-being of adolescents and young adults.

This year, Lymphoma Canada is hosting two regional education conferences focused on Hodgkin lymphoma, in addition to a National Conference. All conferences are open to patients, their families, and the general public. For a complete list of upcoming events, please visit our events page.

As part of the AYA initiative, Lymphoma Canada will also launch an AYA Peer Support Program to connect young patients and their caregivers with other adolescents and young adults who have experienced lymphoma. If you've recently been diagnosed with lymphoma, it may be helpful to speak with someone who has experienced treatment and has learned how to cope with the same illness. If you are interested in participating as a newly diagnosed patient or in becoming a peer mentor, please visit our website.

AYA Patient Experience

At Lymphoma Canada, we often hear from patients, caregivers, friends, and family members who are looking to share their stories. This is an important part of going through the lymphoma experience.

Madison Miles was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at age 22. She has completed chemotherapy treatment at Princess Margaret Cancer Center and contributes to patient support programs here at Lymphoma Canada. Click here to learn more about Madison's journey with lymphoma.
