"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!"
"Having cancer is such a life changing experience. It is only once you finish your treatment that you have the time to take into consideration everything you have been through."
"Being on a Teenage Cancer Trust unit makes the treatment a lot easier. You can tell the care is focused around you as a person."
