Youth Cancer

About Us

The WA Youth Cancer Service is for adolescents and young adults (AYA) aged between 15 -25 years who have been diagnosed with cancer and treated in adult hospitals across Western Australia.

The WA YCS provides expert care to young people with cancer across Western Australia. Young people with cancer have specific physical, social, educational and practical support needs which require the assistance of expertly trained professionals both during and after treatment. Our aim is to provide the best medical, nursing and psychosocial treatment and care available.

We are a free service and we are happy to come to meet you, or you can come to see us at the You Can Centre at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. If you live or are being treated outside the Perth metro area we can link up with you and/or your treatment team via tele-health facilities and provide expert input and support specific to caring for young people with cancer.
