Welcome to Critical Mass

We are the Young Adult Cancer Alliance, where unifying voices and eliminating barriers is our mission and our passion. We are non-profits, medical institutions, patient advocacy groups, government agencies, clinicians, researchers and dedicated individuals – all united by a shared passion to improve the lives of adolescents and young adults (AYAs) with cancer. By joining together, we believe that we have the power to create a world where young adults with cancer have no barriers to survive and thrive.
