Support the Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Program

The Schroeder and McCaffery families were forever bonded when their sons Austin “Flash” Schroeder and Patrick McCaffery battled cancer together. Austin passed away in 2015, but his legacy lives on through each family's effort to support the University of Iowa Health Care Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Program. 

The AYA Cancer Program specializes in addressing the individual needs of young people ages 13 to 31 as they navigate their cancer journey. This specialized program is a joint effort between University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital and Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Research shows better results for patients who participate in programs with expertise in treating both adult and children’s cancer. The AYA Cancer Program combines the expertise of Iowa’s only comprehensive children’s hospital and its only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center.

In honor of Austin and Patrick's favorite number (22), help the Schroeder and McCaffery families raise $22,022 for the AYA Cancer Program by October 31. All the money raised through this campaign will directly support the AYA Cancer Program and patients just like Austin and Patrick. 

After you make your donation, don't forget to SHARE this page with your family and friends to spread the word about the AYA Cancer Program and its incredible impact on children and their families battling cancer.
