About YACC

We know cancer is different for young adults. That’s why we’re here! Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC) is a registered charity that works with and for young adults diagnosed with cancer between 15 and 39.

Our mission is to support young adults as they move through and beyond cancer. To be the connect to peers, bridgeo out of isolation, and source of inspiration. For young adults, any cancer, any stage, YACC's got their back.

YACC provides a number of programs for young adult survivors and supporters to help connect them with others who ‘get it.’ We know that young adult survivors and supporters are facing huge challenges that are very specific to their age group—fertility, finances, relationships, and independence are only a few. These issues are a lot different for a young adult than theyare for children and older adults; someone in their 60s doesn’t have the same concerns about fertility as
someone in their 20s.
