What We Treat

At the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, we understand teenagers and young adults who are facing cancer have their own unique needs and concerns. They need a different approach than children or adults, so we offer an Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Program just for young people ages 15 to 21.
