AYA@USC Norris is 100% dependent on donations from the community and our philanthropic partners to achieve its goals and operate the program.
Each year, AYA@USC Norris is required to fundraise its entire budget to cover the salaries of the specialized nurses, educators and social workers who serve our teen and young adult patients. In addition, the program has to secure vital funding to advance special research projects, clinical trials, and educational initiatives focused on AYA cancers and patients.
Thank you for supporting our teen and young adult patients! Together, we have the opportunity to change the course of AYA patient care and significantly increase survival rates of teen and young adult patients affected by cancer—first at USC in Southern California and then throughout the world.
Caryn Roach was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2012. Thanks to the expert care she received at USC Norris, Caryn is healthy today! She recently earned her doctorate in occupational therapy and now works at the Keck Medical Center of USC.
Your philanthropic partnership helps patients like Caryn during treatment and throughout survivorship!
