Brewing Tough Conversations to Help Each Other Face Cancer


Elephants and Tea is bringing you a new way to hear and amplify the stories of the adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer community with the digital series Perkatory: Brewing Tough Conversations to Help Each Other Face Cancer.

The last Thursday of each month we will host a Zoom meeting at 7:00pm Eastern Time inviting anyone that would like to join Perkatory that month.

Sign up for the first Perkatory Now!

Topic: Finding Your Herd
When: Thursday, January 28th at 7:00pm EST – 8:30pm EST

After you sign up you will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link for the meeting. Any questions please contact

How Perkatory works:

  • Each Perkatory session we will invite writers that have been featured throughout the month on a specific topic to read their writing out loud to the community
  • We will then invite an organization to come and present briefly about who they are and what they do so people attending can learn more about other awesome organizations
  • We will then open it up to Q&A and a discussion on the topic of the month and the writers stories

The goal of Perkatory is:

  • To encourage individuals to use their voice
  • Learn more about a specific topic that might be difficult for some cancer patients to bring up themselves
  • Bring each other out of “perkatory” to help live your best life
  • Find out more about organizations that we love working with and support the cancer community

January Perkatory Topic is: Finding Your Herd

Full schedule for 2021 coming soon!

January Speakers: Keaton Williams, Rachael Walker, Stephanie Scoletti, Steven Welch, and Yolanda Murphy
