The annual Survivor Conference is the biggest reunion of young adult cancer patients/survivors and supporters in Canada, bringing together a group of people who “get it” to connect and learn things that can help you move forward or beyond the cancer experience. Through the Conference, we’ll give you information to help you regain some of the control you may have lost — or felt like you lost — while dealing with cancer.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, we have postponed Survivor Conference: 20/20 from May 21-25 to October 1-5, 2020. The health and safety of our participants, facilitators, stakeholders, and staff is our top priority. In the era of COVID-19 everything seems tentative. We hope our conference will proceed as planned in October. We will, of course, continue to monitor the situation and put your health first in our planning.
Your registration is still valid.
Our registration list will remain the same. If you have already confirmed your spot, you are still registered for the conference.
What if you can no longer attend?
We completely understand. Please get in touch with Lesley through email ([email protected]) at your earliest convenience. Do not cancel your spot just yet if you are unsure about whether or not you can attend. The conference waitlist has over 100 people on it, and while we are looking for ways to get even more of you there, we wouldn’t want you to have to reapply closer to the date.
What if you have already booked flights?
If you booked your own flight, we recommend holding tight and joining us as we watch the airline cancellation policies, they are changing often and hopefully you will be able to switch to the new dates without financial penalty. If we booked your flight, we will be in touch with you in the coming days with the next steps required.
We know October is a long time away, and we are discussing options to connect you more deeply through more digital programs than ever. We will announce them to you directly through email, on our website, and our social channels in the coming weeks.
Please reach out to myself, Karine, Lesley, or Angie if you have any questions about what this means.
As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. We will use this extra time to ensure Survivor Conference: 20/20 is the best ever.
We hope to see you in Winnipeg in October!
Live life. Love life.
