Young Adult Cancer Canada holds national events to bring people together whenever possible, and we were very excited to host the 8th annual Big Cancer Hook-up in January 2021! We will talk to members of the YACC community about living and loving life after cancer and share it with you and your young adult cancer pals through an awesome show.

The Big Cancer Hook-up is a national event providing opportunities for young adult cancer survivors and supporters to get together in their local communities and connect, reconnect, be inspired, and have fun. In 2020, over 300 young adult cancer patients, survivors, supporters, and caregivers tuned in from home and young adults affected by cancer will got together to watch in Calgary, Edmonton, Fredericton, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Red Deer, Saskatoon, St. John’s, Sudbury, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, Waterloo, and Winnipeg!

Laughter is the best medicine, after all! We were all brought together because cancer is shit, but that’s exactly why we need to be fun-loving and full of life!
