Teens and St. Jude

We're inspired by our teens' courage and committed to meeting their medical, developmental and emotional needs.

 

33% of patients at St. Jude are teenagers battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

More than 5,000 teens ages 15 –19 in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer each year. 

Teen cancer patients often face different issues — and different cancers — than younger patients. The most common cancers among teens include Hodgkin lymphoma and thyroid carcinoma.
