Caring for Young People With Cancer

When teens and young adults are diagnosed with cancer, they can feel lost — too old for pediatric care but decades younger than most cancer patients. And their numbers are growing: A staggering 90,000 cases are projected in 2022.

“Our goal,” says Dr. William Tap, Chief of MSK’s Sarcoma Medical Oncology Service, “is to provide well-rounded care that addresses what this group needs beyond medicine — physically, emotionally, and socially.”
