Worried about cancer?

We are a source of support, helping with all the things that people affected by cancer want and need. It's not only patients who live with cancer, we help carers, families and communities.  We guide people through the system, supporting them every step of the way. If you have any questions about cancer, need support, or if you just want someone to talk to, call the free helpline.  Because cancer can affect life in so many ways, we do whatever it takes to give people the support they need.

Young Lives vs Cancer

Helpline: 0300 303 5220


Live chat

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.  At Young Lives vs Cancer, we get that.  We are the charity that helps children and young people (0-25) and their families find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them.
