We launched YACC Web: Talks early in the quarantine, a “weekly” webcast with an expert on an issue surrounding the young adult cancer experience.
Join us each Monday as we talk to a survivor, supporter, health professional, or lifestyle expert to help you live with, through, and beyond cancer! Videos will be posted here, our YouTube channel, and our Facebook page.
Closed captioning available on our YouTube links!
In the season 2 finale, we will get to know Micah as he shares about his life before cancer, with cancer, and where he is today. He will also talk about how receiving love and support affected his experience. His energy is contagious — you’ll just have to watch it to see for yourself!
Thank you to our partners at CIBC for making this web series possible!
We Get It is on hiatus until the new year. Visit our YouTube playlist to catch up on any episodes you may have missed!
Karine (she/her/hers) is an extrovert who loves her introverted moments! She can have a bit of a potty mouth, but only to make a point because, let’s be honest, cancer fucking sucks! She has been the program director at Young Adult Cancer Canada for almost 12 years now, and absolutely loves it!
Originally from Montreal, she fell in love with the young adult cancer community and moved to St. John’s, NL to work with YACC. She strongly believes that when we feel heard by people who truly get it, it provides a sense of relief and opens us up for growth and healing. She sees it happening daily in the YACC community and that fuels her passion to do more and better for this forgotten generation.
With We Get It, she aims to break the feelings of isolation and offer information that is relevant to young adults dealing with cancer and anyone supporting them.
