Big Cancer Hook-up special guest: Janice Davidson

February 6, 2015

Janice Davidson | Clarenville, NL
Diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia at age 34

janice davidson headshotJanice is a social worker who says her three children are her biggest accomplishment, and her favourite things to do are to spend time with them and her husband, Ian—especially when they’re travelling or being active in some way.

She says she has faced many challenges since being diagnosed with cancer, but the biggest would have to be parenting through her illness and being away from home for months at a time two hours away from her family.

She is currently in remission for the third time, and is forever hopeful that she is cured!

Attended: Retreat Yourself Adventure 2012, and Survivor Conference 2012 and 2014

What’s your favourite YACC memory?
This is tough to pick as every experience has been so empowering and awesome, however, I would have to say my most memorable event was in Gros Morne at Retreat Yourself Adventure. Opening circle on the first night was where I knew my husband and I had finally found people who truly understood our cancer journey. Life changing!
