Let’s do some cool stuff with this new website!

September 30, 2013

One of the ideas we had for the new website was to concentrate on a different topic that affects young adults dealing with cancer on a monthly schedule. The site is only a couple of weeks old, and we have shared some great stories with you already, but to get you in the mood for what’s to come, we are sneaking in before September ends with a couple of different perspectives on moving beyond cancer on a cognitive level.

DSC_0153The first comes from Duncan Pike, a Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor who took a couple of years after his diagnosis to find his way back to his original plan of going to grad school. Duncan has just started the next chapter of his education at the University of Toronto, and he offers an entertaining look on navigating the post-treatment track and finding his way back to a goal that he’s now confident was the right one for him.

Survivor Conference 2011 facilitatorsThe second is a look at brain fog by the wonderful Dr. Heather Palmer (front, left) of Maximum Capacity. Heather and her colleague, Jennifer Chown, have now attended a number of YACC events with their fantastic brain fog workshop. In this article, Heather explains why your brain changes, how to recognize changes in cognitive function, and what you can do about it.

We hope you enjoy this sneak peek into what’s in store for this site, and keep your eyes peeled because there’s more to come! We have plans on how to include more of you (and your creativity) on this chunk of the Internet!
