IN BRIEF
 
ADOLESCENTS AND YOUNG ADULTS WITH CANCER IN CANADA
 
For the first time, national data are available on the cancer experience for adolescents and young adults (AYAs) between the ages of 15 to 39. The new report, released by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, identifies loss of fertility as a major source of distress for young men and women.

Fertility preservation is a primary concern for adolescents and young adults who are all within the reproductive age range and will live an average of 50 to 60 years beyond treatment and diagnosis. However, provision of services is limited by the number of specialized in-vitro fertilization (IVF) clinics in Canada.

Adolescents and Young Adults with Cancer: A System Performance Report shows that system responses must be tailored to meet stage–of–life specific care needs – needs that may be slipping through the crack for those who fall between pediatric and adult cancer systems.
