The DC Young Adult Cancer Community (DCYACC) is all about addressing the unique challenges and concerns of young adults in their 20’s, 30’s, and early 40’s who are living with cancer. In addition to welcoming Young Adult Cancer Survivors (YACS) to our weekly yoga, cooking, stress reduction, and support programs, we aim to provide a forum for fellowship with creative and relevant topics ranging from integrative health and fertility choices to coping strategies, relationship issues, and everything in between.
We are currently collaborating with other support and treatment centers across the DC region to bring more YACS together for even better programs. This initiative, the DC Young Adult Cancer Community Meetup and Support Group, meets monthly at Smith Center for support and socialization. Each session is led by a licensed facilitator.
