What's it all about?
Find Your Sense of Tumour is a weekend away for young people who've had cancer. At FYSOT you can pick up loads of useful information on the range of issues that young people with cancer face, share experiences and ask questions to our panel of experts. We have fantastic workshops and activities plus plenty of time to chill out and unwind. Every evening there's a chance to make new friends and get dressed up for the fancy dress party!
It was really amazing being able to share experiences together and speak with other young people without having to explain what it was like to have cancer or to have undergone rounds of chemotherapy.
Expect to laugh a lot, learn a lot and make friends for life!
