We are an AMS club operating out of the University of British Columbia vancouver campus. Made up by passionate, student volunteers in the fight against cancer.
Our Goals and Purpose:
- Promote awareness about cancer and cancer related issues
- Offer support to the UBC community and to those who have been affected by cancer and related issues
- Organize events for recognized national and local charities
- Provide information about cancer and cancer related issues
Itching to join us in the fight against cancer? We provide volunteer opportunities! We are open to all, and as a student-run organization, if you’re a student, don’t hesitate to contact us and join!
We have been an AMS club since 2006.
No matter what it is, these two have got your back. They bring the vision, initiative, and completion to UBC Cancer Association. Feel like talking? Have an idea, a concern, or are just curious about the club? These two are the ones to talk to!
* Adam was the only President for semester 1, Tracy has joined as Co-President for semester 2.

Working on both awareness and outreach, this committee currently creates our educational materials.
These talented individuals manage cancer decoded, our educational series on the science behind cancer. From script-writing to drawing, to quality control, each release of cancer decoded takes a lot of time to create.
