YACN (Young Adult Cancer Network) at Callanish provides retreats and support programs for younger adults aged 18-39 living with cancer, and for those who have a history of cancer and are dealing with survivorship issues. A diagnosis of cancer profoundly changes a young person and presents its own unique set of age-related challenges. Our programs provide young adults and their families the opportunity to explore in-depth the impact that cancer has had on their lives physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.
Members of the YACN group are invited to participate in ongoing programs such as day retreats, meditation, relaxation, writing and art therapy groups. Callanish has run two week-long YACN retreats and plans to do more in the future.
We are closely connected with Young Adult Cancer Canada and encourage you to check out their retreats and conferences at http://www.youngadultcancer.ca/
