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.
