OUR APPROACH
Support can come in many forms. What we have tried to create is additional sources of support beyond your own personal support team. We believe education, awareness, and variety is essential when looking for that support group that best suites your needs.

This site will be monitored and continually updated. If you have any suggestions of support groups you have found and would like to see on our resource guide, please don't hesitate to let us know. Feel free to contact anyone on this site with new information on resources we may not yet be aware of.

May Cause Radiance is a Nonprofit Organization based in Kamloops, BC, that supports young adults affected by CANcer.

It was founded by Tessa Inkster following her journey with cancer, at age 27. Upon successfully completing her cancer treatment, she set out to give back to the community by filling a gap that she had identified along her journey.

Being a young adult can difficult, but then throw a cancer diagnosis into the mix! This demographic has a special set of needs when faced with a cancer diagnosis, and May Cause Radiance aims to support the individual along their journey through a peer support network, information sharing and health and wellness offerings from our amazing partners in a variety of wellness fields.

May Cause Radiance’s mission is to help make a young adult CANcer warrior feel well, beautiful and RADIANT amidst the challenges of this dis-ease.

At Look Good Feel Better we believe that cancer care needs to treat the whole person, including her well-being and the quality of life of the people that are affected.

It’s easy to forget how much of our identity is related to our physical appearance – things like hair and body image can be a powerful part of that. Cancer affects this at a time when a woman may be feeling vulnerable in many other ways.

Our workshop shows women certain steps they can take so they can look good, feel better and get closer to the person they were before they began fighting this debilitating disease. It takes one thing off the table at a time when there are so many other fears that a woman may be facing.
