Service Description

Provides a way for young adults (18 – 39 years old) affected by cancer to connect in an easy, safe, and supportive environment. Chats are peer-lead themed virtual conversations.

  • YACC Chats: general chats are held multiple times a week for any young adults diagnosed with cancer. Each chat is themed to offer a variety of opportunities to connect within the young adult cancer experience.
  • 2SLGBTQIA+ Chats: monthly chat that provides a safe space for 2SLGBTQIA+ people to connect with others diagnosed with cancer in a private, affirming, empowering online space.
  • YACC Chats – Advanced & Metastatic Chats: monthly chat that provides a safe space for people who have been diagnosed with an advanced or metastatic cancer with other young adults who understand this experience.

Series: similar to the regular YACC Chats, but participants sign up and commit to getting together weekly for eight weeks in order to deepen connections and build on the conversation.

  • YACC Chats – Newly diagnosed: closed group for young adults who have been diagnosed or re-diagnosed within the past 3 years.
  • YACC Chats – Advanced & Metastatic Chats: closed group for young adults who are living with a cancer diagnosis that is metastatic (often stage or grade 4).
  • YACC Chats – Survivorship: closed group for young adults who have been diagnosed or re-diagnosed within the past 10 years and may have been informed that the cancer is in remission or has been cured.
