Healthcare Partnerships

Medical centers and healthcare organizations nationwide are working with First Descents (FD) to improve survivorship through adventure, physical activity, and peer connection.

Partner with FD to improve the emotional and physical health for the adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patients in your care. Whether you refer patients to our programs or work with us to design a custom program, we are committed to supporting your team to address the unique needs of AYA survivors.
