For young people with cancer, Christmas can be the hardest time of year.

Christmas is a time to eat, drink and be merry, but these things can be very difficult for a young person with cancer. They might be feeling too unwell or worried about treatment to enjoy the fun. They may have to stay in hospital over the festive period.

We want everyone we support to be able to enjoy Christmas as fully as possible. That’s why our nurses and support staff fight to preserve the things that make Christmas special and important. We won’t let cancer cancel Christmas.
