YACC’s got your back

Hey! We’re so glad to meet you!

We are Young Adult Cancer Canada — YACC for short — and we are a national network of hundreds of young adults affected by cancer, just like you. YACC is here for young adults who were diagnosed with cancer between the ages of 15-39 and are currently between 18-39.

Our mission is to support young adults living with, through, and beyond cancer. To be the connection to peers, bridge out of isolation, and source of inspiration. Every cancer, every stage, YACC’s got your back. (Learn more about our roots!)

We do that through digital, local, and national programs like our private Facebook groups, Need to YACCLocalife, and four-day events like Retreat Yourself, Retreat Yourself Adventure, and the Survivor Conference. We’d love to help you get involved!
