We launched YACC Web: Talks early in the quarantine, a “weekly” webcast with an expert on an issue surrounding the young adult cancer experience.

We Get It season 2 will feature a series of presentations and sessions from previous events which have not yet been shared publicly. We hope you enjoy catching up on what you missed (or what you have been hoping to revisit).
 

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.

This week on We Get It, Scott Adams takes us on a ride exploring exercise in the context of cancer. The side effects and health risks associated with cancer treatments are complex and can be difficult to prevent and treat; exercise therapy may be the most effective way to control these risks and help take control of your life. Join us to learn more about these risks and explore personalized strategies for harnessing the protective power of exercise.

You can check out all of the videos on YouTube!

Thank you to our partners at CIBC for making this web series possible!

OUR HOST

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.
