with Jenn McRobbie
- Sunday, November 13th, 3:30-5:00pm
Let’s craft our way to a calmer family holiday! For Young Adult Cancer Survivors, the holidays can be an especially trying time. Unfamiliar emotions coupled with the physical and psychological demands of treatment can leave YACS feeling like they don’t belong. And don’t even get us started on how some family members seem to not be able to cope with your illness. Come join with people who understand how trying family gatherings can be after or during cancer. Life coach and young cancer survivor Jenn McRobbie will guide us on this fun evening aimed at helping you set intentions for a peaceful family gathering through the use of a vision board: a graphic depiction of your hopes and dreams.
Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.

A Guide to Cultivating Closeness When a Friend is in Crisis. Why is She Acting So Weird? was borne from her experiences interacting with friends after diagnosis and during treatment.
