Young Adult Cancer Survivor (YACS) Program

Come be a part of our Young Adult Cancer Survivors (YACS) program. If you’re between the ages of 18-39 and have been diagnosed with cancer, you’re invited to a free meal with other young adult cancer survivors and staff from the Pratt Cancer Center at Mercy. You’ll be able to ask questions, voice your ideas, mingle with other YACS and enjoy a meal on us.

Join us for the sessions that best fit your schedule. You may attend as many dates as you’d like. Feel free to bring a partner or a friend.

There is no YACS scheduled event in July.
