Join the Elephants and Tea Herd and hear 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 goal of Perkatory is to encourage individuals to use their voice, to learn more about a specific topic that might be difficult for some cancer patients to bring up themselves, and to bring each other out of ‘perkatory’ (a play on the word purgatory), to help live your best life.
We will host five Perkatory events in 2023! This year, we will be using a new platform called Zoom Events. You will only have to register once to be able to attend all five events! Registration will be open soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
