"Young Adult Cancer Canada is inviting all young adults dealing with cancer in Canada* to join us in Ottawa from November 3-7, 2011 for the 5th Annual Survivor Conference. We will spend four days building our community, sharing our experiences, and learning how to make the rest of our lives the best of our lives with others who truly “get it.” The weekend will feature professional speakers, workshops, small group discussions, and free time to connect on a personal level.
The Survivor Conference is also our annual reunion where past program alumni are encouraged to come back and reconnect with the friends they have made in the past while they’re making new friends.
The program is free for survivors and one supporter, all we ask is that you cover your travel to and from Ottawa. We’ll take care of the rest from your hotel room to your meals. We also have some travel assistance available and great fundraising ideas to help you cover some of the cost of travel.
Please visit our website (youngadultcancer.ca/survivor_conference) or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to apply!
*diagnosed and currently between 18-39."
This is a great opportunity to all who can try to make it. And apply even if you're having financial issues, you'd be surprised how many organizations and people will try to help out with the travel costs when they hear what this is about. :) Hope to see some of you there!
