AWF provides 'Life Interrupted Grants' to young adult patients battling rare cancers, to ease their financial burden, so they can concentrate on healing.
The organization is volunteer based and we are passionate about what we do.
There are 70,000 young adults (16-36) diagnosed every year in the United States. In 20 years, survival rates have not greatly improved for young adults battling cancer. There are limited resources for treatment and young adult cancer patients have unique needs. Young adults patients are caught between pediatric and adult care; in most cases the diagnosis is a rarer form of the disease.
