Young Lives vs Cancer is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children, young people and their families.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer it threatens everything, for them and their family.

At a time when they should be busy being children, enjoying their rollercoaster teenage years or finding their feet at uni, life becomes full of fear. Fear of treatment, but also of families being torn apart, of overwhelming money worries, mental health stretched to breaking point, of having nowhere to turn, no one to talk to.

Young Lives vs Cancer helps children, young people and their families face whatever cancer throws at them. It could be with a financial grant for a parent struggling to keep their child warm thorough treatment. Or the help of a Young Lives vs Cancer Social Worker supporting a family to navigate the day-to day practical challenges that come with a child’s cancer diagnosis. Or helping a family stay together at one of our free Homes from Home close to where their child is having treatment. And if we think families aren’t being heard, we’re not afraid to shout on their behalf.

Every day 12 more children and young people will hear the devastating news they have cancer. By remembering Young Lives vs Cancer with a gift in your Will you can be there for them.
