Are you a young adult who has been diagnosed with cancer?
Our Young Adult Program (YAP) provides emotional and practical support to anyone aged 18-39 who has had a cancer diagnosis .
A cancer diagnosis for a young person can present a unique set of challenges such as:
-Disconnection from peers and social life
-Loss of independence
-Impact of treatment on fertility
-Interrupted family planning
-Impact on romantic relationships
YAP aims to help those facing these challenges by providing a safe place where one can find peer and professional supports to help them as they go through diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
The YAP support group is facilitated by an oncology social worker. Groups are held on the third Wednesday of each month, 7:00-8:30 pm, at the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency’s University Heights Square location – 130-1804 McOrmond Drive (at the end of Attridge Drive).
No registration is needed. For more information please contact Nicole at 306-655-6359.
