Dr. Sender gets the whole being-young-with-cancer-sucks thing.

No, we mean he REALLY gets it.

You see, he isn’t your average cancer doctor. How else would we get away with talking about what your neut counts need to be to have sex?

Let’s just say he’s kind of a big deal. Dr. Sender is changing the way adolescents and young adults (AYAs) across the world are being treated for cancer. And he is improving survival rates–making sure that YOU don’t fall through the cracks.

He’s plugged in with a ton of important people and important cancer groups. He’s out there fighting for your rights to be treated like a real person, and to go on to a real life after all this drama is over.

One of the coolest things about Dr. Sender? He’s pretty much impossible to embarrass. Go ahead, try it. You’ll find questions and answers here that would make most parents totally freak out.

See? Awkward.

Wait, there’s more. He’s the medical director of the Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children’s and program director of Adolescent and Young Adult Program at CHOC Children’s. Read more about all of that here.

And he’s the big-wig behind the Journal of Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology (JAYAO)- the first and only medical journal dedicated to the adolescent and young adult-aged cancer population.

He’s THE guy that gets it.

Told you so.
