What’s it all about?

Find Your Sense of Tumour gives young people the opportunity to find out what they need to know about cancer, its effects, share experiences and ask questions to our panel of experts. Talks range from body image to fertility, real life experiences and celebrity speakers.

But it’s not just a conference. We have fantastic on-site workshops and activities plus plenty of time to chill out and enjoy the fantastic surroundings. Every evening there is a chance to get to meet new friends and get dressed up for the themed fancy dress disco.
