Supporting those in their teens and early 20's who are fighting cancer.
We provide those aged 13-24 with the social, emotional, and physical support that is vital to their recovery. They can come together with others their age who understand what they’re going through, and remember who they are as a person, not just a cancer patient.
The effects of cancer can be long-lasting, which is why our support is too. Whether a young person is coming to terms with a recent diagnosis, undergoing treatment or years into remission, we’re here for them every step of the way.
Through our free activities and residential stays, we provide opportunities to help them rebuild their lives or, at the very least, live with their diagnosis in the best possible way.
At a time when it can feel like there’s so much they can’t do, we’re here to show them what they can do, without the ‘c’ word holding them back.
Our free activities and events take place regularly both face-to-face and online, so no matter where a young person lives, whether they’re at home or in hospital, they can benefit from our support.
They unite young people fighting cancer, enabling them to make new friends, learn new skills and embrace new challenges.
There’s something for all interests and abilities, with new and exciting activities to look forward to each week. You can see what’s coming up here.
To be a part of the action, a young person just needs to register first, they can then start joining is as soon as they feel ready.
Having cancer is tough, but it shouldn’t be lonely. Our over 18’s residential stays bring together around 20 young people for an unforgettable break away from home, where they can spend valuable time with others in a similar situation.
Throughout their stay, they take part in a range of our regular activities each day, with the added benefit of staying away from home.
It’s a chance to start regaining confidence and independence in a new environment, surrounded by others in a similar situation. Lifelong friendships are made, lasting memories will be treasured and they’ll leave feeling positively challenged, ready for the next steps ahead.
Cancer doesn’t just affect the person diagnosed, but those closest to them. We organise monthly events specifically for parents and siblings of the young people we support, so they too, can benefit from spending time with others in a similar situation, where they have a safe space to share their thoughts, hopes and fears.
You can see the upcoming dates in our calendar here.
