Introduction

Recognition of the distinctive challenges in providing care to adolescents and young adults (AYA) with cancer has grown over the past 30 years in numerous countries, stimulated in particular by groups of advocates who have in turn raised awareness and philanthropic funding while harnessing support from the cancer care community and agencies of federal governments. Several examples stand out.

CanTeen (http://www.canteen.org.au) was founded in Australia in 1985 and has grown into a national organization providing support to young people with cancer through more than 250 programs across the country. In recent years it has received substantial funding support from the federal government. This registered charity provides money for specialist hospital care, counselling and individual assistance as well as information and peer support programs.
