"Finding out you need treatment for cancer is scary and frightening for anybody, but especially so when you are a teenager, and at the very beginning of your adult life. This is why Teenage Cancer Trust is such a vital organisation, because they give support to teenagers during some of the worst times of their lives, and make sure that they are not alone."
"I can honestly say I feel very lucky to have had such fantastic care from everyone involved in my cancer journey"
"Despite me having all these problems, I live every day like it is my last. I still go out at weekends with friends and try to be a positive."
"Since I was diagnosed it's been my intention to turn the experience into a positive by raising awareness of melanomas"
"Sometimes it's good to have a cry or be sad, but keep positive. It gets better."
"Teenage Cancer Trust gave me so much confidence to do everything I do, and I wouldn’t be where I am now without them."
"Even though I wasn't being treated on a unit, I was assigned a Teenage Cancer Trust team who would come out to me, both at my local hospital and at home."
"I finished my treatment just less than a year ago and am now sitting my GCSEs."
"I've learnt that I'm a stronger person than I ever thought I was."
"I would say to anyone facing cancer 'you’ve got this', stay positive whatever the big C throws at you, and try to keep your chin up no matter what!"
