But right now, for every young person we reach, there’s another we can’t. Almost half of young people with cancer are not treated in our units, which could mean they’re treated either with young children or much older adults in hospitals where there isn’t the same level of expertise that we provide. They might also never meet another young person with cancer. This is a scary and lonely experience.
So we’re expanding our work to reach every young person with cancer, no matter where they receive their treatment. We’re starting to build much wider links across the NHS, so we can be there for young people in main cancer hospitals, local designated hospitals, or even in their homes. We're at a critical point in our plan to roll out our support package to every region in the UK - the only thing holding us back is a lack of funds. We need legendary supporters to reach our goal of helping every young person with cancer. And that's where you come in.
