Be a pioneer: join us at the first-ever virtual Find Your Sense of Tumour.
We’re excited to be running the first-ever virtual Find Your Sense of Tumour for 18-27 year olds on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 December 2020.
Take part in online activities, watch inspirational talks and get expert, practical advice on things like body imge, mental wellbeing and work. You’ll get to know other young people who understand what you’re going through – and there’s also plenty of time offline to relax and unwind.
Find Your Sense of Tumour 2020 is open to young people who have/had cancer within the last 5 years and are aged 18 to 27. You don’t need to have been treated on a Teenage Cancer Trust ward to be eligible to attend.
We’ve worked hard to make sure the virtual version of FYSOT is just as interactive, inspirational and fun-filled as ever.
Throughout the weekend there’ll be a huge selection of resources and virtual workshops available on demand. Try yoga, sketching or bullet journaling, learn about wigs, skincare, exercise and employment skills, and get information and support from a range of other fab charities.
There’s also a series of fun offline activities to get creative and make sure you’re not glued to the screen the whole time – although we will encourage you to share the results on social and see what all the other attendees around the UK are up to!
Applications are now closed.
Cancer changes your life. And it may leave you with questions about friendships, relationships, fitness, fertility and lots more.
So Find Your Sense of Tumour is your chance to have a laugh (and learn a few things!) with 100 other people your age who have (or have had) cancer too. In other words they ‘get you’. No brave face needed. No filter. You might even get to know someone who’s had the same cancer as you.
This year, FYSOT will take place online for the first time, which means it’ll look a little different to previous events – rest assured we’re working hard to make sure the virtual weekend is just as interactive, inspirational and fun-filled as ever!
"It was lovely meeting young people from across the UK who had been through similar experiences as I could relate to them."
