Creating A Terrarium Of Your Own
Your living space is an important part of your life. Join us to make a terrarium of your own while talking through what elements young adult survivor, Nubia, uses in her own at-home-oasis. This DIY project will leave you inspired to feel more creative and comfortable in your own space, where you can retreat to find solace in creative coping activities. We’ll send the first 100 participants everything you need to participate and a list of supplies will be sent out to everyone else! *Please see care instructions for the airplant.

Using Fashion to Meet You Where You Are

Whether it’s tips or tricks you’re looking for, or just how to rock it all- there’s lots to learn from this panel of young adults facing cancer!

Lunch with Your Fellow Prickles
Sometimes it’s really hard to feel inspired to cook at the end of a long day. Chat along with your fellow attendees while we hangout, eat lunch, and watch Justin Birchbickler walk us through his easy fish and chips recipe. He’ll chat about tips he has and demonstrate techniques for this totally doable meal!

Finding Your Confidence
Cactus. Tough. Resilient. A bit prickly. Words to live by after facing a cancer diagnosis. But when no one’s looking, it’s hard to remember how you were ever self confident before the Big C. Julie Larson, LCSW, will guide attendees through how to give yourself a much needed pep talk and how to remember that you are a confident, tough, resilient, (and maybe a bit prickly) badass.
12pm PT / 2pm CT / 3pm ET
