This virtual program, launched on World Cancer Day in 2022, provides adolescents and young adults with cancer the opportunity to hear a variety of compelling stories and informative messages from community members who transformed their passions into action. All AYAs, healthcare providers, advocates, and community members are welcome to join us.

After her breast cancer diagnosis at 28 years old, Michaela Raes wondered if she would feel beautiful, feminine, or confident ever again. Despite her initial fears, she learned to appreciate her changing body with the creative and intimate approach of boudoir portraits. The experience was so personally empowering that she co-founded the Breast Cancer Confidence Project, an organization dedicated to helping others reframe the way they view their bodies during and after illness. Michaela will be sharing with us the challenges she endured with her young breast cancer diagnosis, why boudoir photography was so influential in her journey, and how she plans to help others through her experience.
