Miss J would be proud

June 27, 2011

Jasmine Singh was a young adult, and YACC alumna, from Ottawa. She attended the Survivor Conference in St. John’s in 2009 and expressed her interest in holding a happy hour in support of YACC.

She never got a chance to hold her event, but her friends honoured her memory on June 23 with Miss J’s Cocktails for Cancer. They raised $5,641 that will go directly toward helping other young adults like Jasmine attend events like the Survivor Conference. These events help people move through and beyond their cancer to make the rest of their lives the best of their lives.

Jasmine touched a lot of hearts here at YACC, and it’s great to know she is still loved and remembered.

Thank you to everyone who attended this event, especially Chris and Merrill for organizing it. We hear there are already plans for next year, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with!
