Patty (Jarvis) MacMillan -- "Don't Waste Your Dash"
Patty was an engaged family member, cat-lover, concert-goer, and active member of the YACC community until she died from ovarian cancer in 2019. She encouraged other young adults to reach out to YACC's supportive community to help them live with, through, and beyond cancer, and her legacy will continue through the lives of those young adults whose lives are changed through Patty (Jarvis) MacMillan -- "Don't Waste Your Dash."Read more
Stephen Michell Fund
Steve was a strong fighter from a very young age. It is incredible to see a seven-year-old tackle the adversities of multiple orthopedic surgeries and grow into a young adult obtaining a university business degree with a brain tumour growing inside his head. Steve never backed down from a fight. He took each day as it came and contributed so much to our world during his 25 year journey. Steve’s family is committed to honouring his request to help more young adults experience the power of connecting with others who “get it.”Read more
