COVID-19 Updates, Information and Support

The AYA Key Workers are working really hard to ensure young people with cancer all over Aotearoa are supported during this time. Check out the Newsletter we have co-created with the Key Workers  Click here

We have also created a Covid-19 page where you will find information about undergoing cancer treatment as a young person during the current August/September 2021 COVID-19 lockdown period. You can check out the page here: Covid-19 Page

Take care during this time and know you are not alone! We are here to support you as well as your Key Workers and healthcare team.
