Young Adult Cancer Canada holds national events to bring people together whenever possible, and we are very excited to host the sixth annual Big Cancer Hook-up in early 2019! 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.

We are excited to share this event again this year with young adult cancer patients, survivors, supporters, and caregivers! This year, in addition to viewing from home, young adults affected by cancer are getting together to watch in Calgary, Edmonton, Fredericton, Halifax, Ottawa, Prince George, St. John’s, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, and Winnipeg!

What you can expect

Local Events

Groups of young adults affected by cancer get together in cities across the country to watch the live stream together and then hang out afterward!

HD Live-Stream

Our partners ensure the broadcast is crystal clear and engaging so you feel connected and entertained whether you’re watching with a group, or home alone!

Some Terrible Jokes

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. "
