Presented by Elephants and Tea and Lacuna Loft, YA Cancer Gabfest’s mission is to Empower the AYA Cancer Community to Embrace Their Voice and Story.
Throughout the week of December 7th, we invite you to share, explore, and learn as we interact together. You are the expert in your own care, so along with experts in the fields, Gabfest will combine and elevate the individual voices of the young adult cancer community.
We’ll offer opportunities to connect with other young adults facing cancer in crash courses, interactive panel discussions, hangouts, and more.
Each day will have a new theme(s). The Themes at Gabfest will focus on*:
Monday: Opening Day, Who is the Expert in the Room?
Tuesday: Self-Advocacy + Storytelling
Wednesday: Mental Health + Wellness
Thursday: Metastatic, Caregiving, and Sexual Health + Relationships (separate tracks)
Friday: YA Cancer and Your Body
*Please note themes are subject to change.
Who: the YA Cancer Community (young adult cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers; healthcare professionals, nonprofit professionals, and patient advocates working with YAs facing cancer)
When: Monday, December 7th – Friday, December 11th via video chat
How does it work? Gabfest will meet each day for 3 hours in the evening (exact time is TBD). Each day will consist of a crash course, an interactive panel/discussion/talk, and a hangout (aka, Gabfest After Hours). You are welcome to attend a single session of the event or as many sessions and days as you would like. When you sign up below, we’ll send you everything you’ll need to attend the session(s) you are interested in!
