'Improving the outcomes of young people with cancer, one child at a time'

A Toronto toddler with a brain tumour that recurred after surgery. A little boy from Winnipeg with a rare form of leukemia. A teenager from rural B.C. with osteosarcoma that has spread to her lungs.

There has been dramatic improvement in treatments and outcomes for many pediatric cancers over the last three decades. However, for the 20 per cent of young people whose cancers have spread, returned, or are resistant to treatment, outcomes remain grim. 

These are some of the children, adolescents, and young adults (CAYA) with hard-to-treat cancers that the new pan-Canadian TFRI-funded project PRecision Oncology For Young peopLE (PROFYLE) program wants to help.
