Boeger explores the difficulties encountered by AYAs with cancer, focusing on 3 key areas: fertility, psychosocial support, and survivorship. The MD Anderson Cancer Center implemented an AYA clinic to address these needs, with positive feedback from patients and nursing staff. Boeger highlights the significance of addressing fertility concerns before treatment, delivering psychosocial support, and customizing survivorship care for AYAs to ensure their well-being.
