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 under the age of 40 and are currently over the age of 18.

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, Localife, and four-day events like Retreat Yourself, Retreat Yourself Adventure, and the Survivor Conference. We’d love to help you get involved! Fill out the form below to tell us a little more about you, and we’ll connect with the most helpful info.
