“All donations to the Shave for the Brave help Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC) provide programs to help this ‘forgotten generation.’ I was fortunate enough to attend two major events with YACC last year, the annual survivor conference in June of last year and an Retreat Yourself Adventure in the fall. I have met some incredible other young adults with cancer and have built a network of people I can relate to when it comes to dealing with cancer.”
She is Shaving with Newtown Elementary on March 29 to make sure these life-changing programs are available for more young adults like her.
