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.

Our mission is to support young adults as they live 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!

Get in touch with our community engagement manager, Lesley Morrissey, at lesley@youngadultcancer.ca. She will be able to tell you more about options for your specific needs. While you wait to hear from her, get started by reading some YACCer profiles!
