Light On Teen Cancer

An exciting expansion at Yale New Haven Health focuses on the needs of a unique and often overlooked demographic – teenage cancer patients. The new center is the resulting collaboration between a charity started by the rock band The Who named Teen Cancer America and a former cancer patient whose passion raised a majority of the project’s funding. The funding was supplemented by a long-term donor to Yale. At its core, the Teen Center is a place for hospital bound teens and young adults to go to do what people that age want to do… socialize, explore, imagine, and grow. Mission Accomplished!
