Young Adult Cancer Canada holds national events to bring people together whenever possible, and we were very excited to host the sixth annual Big Cancer Hook-up in January 2019! Guests Teva Harrison, Heather Palmer, Paul Brace joined Karine Chalifour, Kathy Stock, and Geoff Eaton to talk about living and loving life after cancer.

The Big Cancer Hook-up is a national event providing opportunities for young adult cancer survivors and supporters to get together in their local communities and connect, reconnect, be inspired, and have fun. Young adult cancer patients, survivors, supporters, and caregivers tuned in from home and young adults affected by cancer got together to watch in Calgary, Edmonton, Fredericton, Halifax, Ottawa, Prince George, St. John’s, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, and Winnipeg!

Laughter is the best medicine, after all! We were all brought together because cancer is shit, but that’s exactly why we need to be fun-loving and full of life!

Testimonial from past guests

"Listening to others' insights, perspectives, and experiences can always give you something to think about, no matter where you are in your journey. "
