YACC’s Retreat Yourself Adventure Newfoundland

Young Adult Cancer Canada’s Retreat Yourself Adventure is coming this September to Gros Morne, Newfoundland.

Cancer does not stop after the last chemo drop, it takes time to recover from treatment, process what happened, and figure out what’s next. Once treatment is over, appointments are not as frequent, the body is healing, the physical strength improves, and expectations of what and how things should be creeps in. you have to deal with so many transitions and face a lot of questions. Getting back into a groove is not always as easy as we would like, but it is possible.

Retreat Yourself Adventure aims to help you navigate that unsettling phase. Together, you’ll go on an amazing adventure where you’ll take time to address what it means to be in that zone, and how to transition from it.

What happens on an Adventure?

  • You connect with a group of people that totally gets it
  • You have the chance to do activities that allow you to face your fears and get to know yourself a little better
  • You are empowered to continue moving forward by growing your confidence in your body and mind post-treatment/cancer

  • You have the time of your cancer life!
