Welcome to UNHOOKED: a youth advisory council blog

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is proud to introduce our brand spankin new Youth Advisory Council Blog! A place where youth from across the Prairies and Northwest Territories can discuss the issues of breast cancer and breast health from their perspective. We welcome all youth to submit posts in any format that they find appropriate. We accept prose, poetry, video, photography, visual art and anything else you can dream up – as long as it covers the topics of breast cancer, breast health or the importance of living a healthy lifestyle!

This is also a place for our Youth Advisory Council members and groups to post updates about their events, meetings and other activities. We hope that Youth Advisory Council members from all provinces and territories, although they might live far apart, will have the chance to interact with one another and share ideas.

If you’d like to learn more about how to become a Youth Advisory Council member or would like to submit a blog post, please contact amiller@cbcf.org.

Until next time,

Avery is the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Prairies/NWT Youth Strategy Coordinator. She works closely with Youth Advisory Council volunteers from across the region to assist them in youth-focused awareness and fundraising events and campaigns.
