Young Adult Cancer Survivors (YACS) of Smith Center is all about addressing the unique challenges and concerns of young adults in their 20’s, 30’s, and early 40’s who are living with cancer. In addition to welcoming YACS to our weekly yoga, cooking, stress reduction, and support programs, we aim to provide a forum for fellowship with creative and relevant topics ranging from integrative health and fertility choices to coping strategies, relationship issues, and everything in between.
We are currently collabrating with other support and treatment centers across the DC region to bring more YACS together for even better programs. This new initiative, the DC Young Adult Cancer Community, meets monthly at Smith Center for support and socialization. Each session is led by a lisenced facilitator.
