Her brown hair is down, and her eyes are blue.Did you know that the Recover Study is bringing new YACCers into our vibrant community? Since launching the study, YACC has met an average of 54 new connections per month — nearly twice the average from before!

YACC has an ambitious goal to double the size of our community in the next few years. We think this is attainable and realistic based on the current rate of growth, and our available resources.

The Recover Study has also set a high goal of participation of 2,000 young adults with cancer! It’s undeniable that our Recover Study participants do not exist in the circle of all our connections. To this end, our February Recover Team Leadership meeting focused on the topic of recruitment and discussed questions like:

Knowing that one size does not fit all, the Recover Leadership Team brainstormed an extensive list of ideas about how to attract participants to our Recover Study. We think it’s awesome that recruitment isn’t only for young adults who have received a cancer diagnosis.

The team is also buzzing with activity to explore all potential connections for support with this study in other ways: grant writing, assistance with data analysis, knowledge translation, and report writing are only some examples of the many areas of research where we hope to harness the enthusiasm of the larger community.
