Afternoon YAC Hangout, LGBTQIA+ Edition

We’re excited to bring you a special edition of the Young Adult Cancer (YAC) Hangout: LGBTQIA+ Edition. While it will bring together young adult cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers from the LGBTQIA+ community in an informal Zoom hangout, you’re welcome to chat about anything you’d like.  Whether it’s chatting about LGBTQIA+ joys or concerns, favorite pastimes, easy recipes that are your go tos, cancer, or anything else under the sun, join others who understand what it’s like to go through cancer as a young adult.

Whether you’re talking about cancer or anything else under the sun, join together with other people who understand what it’s like to go through young adult cancer.

Who: For this program, we invite our participants that identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community and respectfully ask others to wait until our next program to attend.

When: Thursday, June 23rdth, 3:30-5 pm PT / 5:30-7 pm CT / 6:30-8 pm ET

How does it work?  After you fill out the form using the above link, you’re signed up for the YAC Hangouts!  These hangouts are informal and unmoderated.  There will be a Cactus Cancer Society staff member or volunteer always present as a guide for the hangout, but these video chats are not a support group and will *not* be led or facilitated by a healthcare provider If you need to talk with someone more qualified to handle any anxiety, side-effects, etc. please contact your physician.  Prior to each YAC Hangout, we’ll send you a link to the video chat that you’ll follow to attend.  The Hangouts have a “drop-in” policy so no need to alert anyone if you can or cannot make it that week.  Most YAC Hangouta are open to any young adult cancer survivor or caregiver who signs up and is available (though this one is specific to parents)!

What will you need?  A computer (or a smartphone or tablet), a headset with a microphone, and a webcam.

And, that’s it!  If you haven’t already, sign up and attend a YAC Hangout!

Bringing together young adult cancer survivors and caregivers each month in an informal video hangout where you can chat about anything you’d like.
