About this Event
Are you aged 18-early 40s, living with a brain tumor? Would you like to connect with other young adults living with a similar diagnosis? You are invited to join our monthly online peer-led UCSF Young Adult Brain Tumor Support Group (YABS).
This is a safe and welcoming place for us to authentically express ourselves, build resilience, and encourage one another to live our best lives. We don’t shy away from the hard stuff, but we also make a lot of room for joy. We laugh, cry, get real, have fun, and share our lives—most importantly, we’re building community! Our group is facilitated by peers who know what it’s like to live with a brain cancer diagnosis as a young adult.
This group is also open to non-UCSF patients. We meet on the last Thursday of each month, from 6:30 - 8:00 pm (PT).
About the Facilitators:
Dace has worked in a variety of industries as a young adult (hospitality, technology sales, event photography, etc). The one thing that has tied them all together is people. As a lifelong learner, he is committed to developing resilience by leaning in with curiosity and learning to embody a growth mindset no matter the circumstance. He enjoys surfing, music of every conceivable kind, and the quiet comfort of extended time with Mother Nature.
Phoebe (they/them) is a former Californian living in Seattle, Washington. Diagnosed with a grade II oligodendroglioma in 2015, they find solace, inspiration, and joy in connecting deeply with other young adults living with brain tumors. They aspire to spend most of their time whipping up something involved and delicious in the kitchen or outside, hiking and camping with their pup, Snack.
Sponsored by the UCSF Sheri Sobrato Brain Cancer Survivorship Program.
