If you have been told you have cancer, or someone you know has, you may be uncertain about what it all means and a bit scared. Finding out a bit more about it can really help.
Talking about things that are on your mind with a trusted friend or adult can be really useful. It can help you feel like you’re not struggling with something on your own, and other people can often provide help or a new perspective that gives you support. This is as true about cancer as it is about other things.
Hearing from young people who have been affected by cancer can be a good way to better understand what it really means, and can also be a source of reassurance and support if you are going through a similar experience yourself.

Family Support Networks have been developed to provide support throughout the cancer journey. They focus on the needs of the whole family – if loved ones are supported the young person in turn will be supported.More
