Get In Touch

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.
