Retreat Yourself weekends offer an opportunity to get together with other young adults with cancer. Many of them are recently out of treatment and have never attended another Young Adult Cancer Canada program. We share our stories and talk about what’s bothering us about cancer, hang out, let loose, and build relationships you’ll value for a long time.

Purpose

The main purpose of Retreat Yourself is to meet people who understand what you're going through and to connect with them. Retreats offer an opportunity to talk about your experiences, relax, have fun, and share stories with your peers who get it.

Eligibility

  • Young adult cancer survivors between 18- and 39-years-old who were diagnosed between 15- and 39-years-old who have not attended Retreat Yourself before, or have relapsed since their last retreat.
  • You can bring one supporter who is also between 18 and 39.
  • Retreat Yourself participants can be in active treatment (with their doctors' permission to attend) or in remission for many years.
