Studies have shown that young people with a cancer diagnosis may experience anxiety, sadness and worry, and may have little opportunity to connect with other young people undergoing treatment.
The SPACE program – Surviving, Prospering and Adjusting to the Cancer Experience – is a group program for young people aged 12-25 going through active cancer treatment. It’s held online once a week over three weeks.
It provides young people with opportunities to develop positive connections with other young people experiencing cancer and treatment. Together they learn how to strengthen their adaptive coping skills to help manage the impact of their cancer experience.
