Young Adults & Young Families

Ask young adults what the hardest part about having cancer is and most will talk about the profound sense of isolation they feel. Whether on-line, through CancerFightClub.com, or at Lou’s House, Hope & Cope’s Wellness Centre,En famille BBQ we offer innovative programming and a safe place where young adults between the ages of 18-39 and their supporters can recharge, connect and empower themselves and each other. Our En famille program provides additional support for young families in which a parent has cancer.

The evolution of Hope & Cope’s Young Adult Program

In 1985, Hope & Cope organized Montreal’s first ever Young Adult Support Group, recognizing that the needs of young adults with cancer differed greatly and that they needed a space of their own to discuss issues such as intimacy, fertility and sexuality, loss of autonomy, dating and body image.

In 2000, the Young Adult Division of Hope & Cope was established to cultivate the next generation of leadership, to represent Hope & Cope’s values and to help ensure its growth and sustainability, with a special focus on the young adult cancer cause.

The goals were to raise awareness in the community and within the healthcare team of the unique challenges and issues faced by young adults with cancer, and to raise funds to support Hope & Cope’s programs and services for young adults. Over the next decade, Members of YAD organized and hosted several successful Denim & Diamonds fundraising parties.

A few years after the opening of Lou’s House, our cancer wellness centre, in consultation with young adults themselves, the CancerFightClub program was born. It offers strong, varied local programming as well as a highly active and visible presence on the Internet and social media.
