About the Teen and Young Adult Program

We know that the cancer diagnosis and treatment experience of teen and young adults (TYA) is unique. To help support you, MSK offers the Teen and Young Adult Program called TYA@MSK. This program is available to patients ages 16 to 30, no matter what type of cancer you have, what type of treatment you’re getting, or where you’re receiving treatment within MSK.

The Teen and Young Adult Program can help you connect with peers and find all the helpful resources MSK has to offer. For more information, visit www.mskcc.org/experience/patient-support/activities/teen-and-young-adult.
