20s & 30s Support Group
An 8-week group for people from 18 to 39 who are living with or after a cancer diagnosis. This group welcomes individuals who have been newly diagnosed or who are up to 5 years post-treatment. Topics in this group may discuss include: fear of recurrence, relationships, emotional health, transitioning, sex and sexuality, side effect management, navigating healthcare systems, and more.
Facilitator: Dani Taylor BA. MSW. RSW. (she/her) is a social worker with SunnyBrook Health Sciences inpatient palliative care unit. She came to Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto in 2017. Dani has also worked for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and Young Adult Cancer Canada. Dani is passionate about narrative and grief-informed approaches to social work, as well as grounding her work in anti-oppressive practices and knowledge.
Please note the ’20s & 30’s is a virtual support group that requires a meeting with Program staff prior to your first attendance.
Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto offers 8-week support groups three times a year. Our support groups are run by mental health professionals who have a strong understanding of the unique needs of individuals who have been impacted by cancer.
Support groups are not operated on a drop-in basis. We encourage commitment to the entire 8-week. A commitment to the group helps to build community and allows for topics and conversations to be built on week by week.
