Right now, many young people with cancer across the UK are particularly at risk from Covid-19. 

They may face even greater uncertainty and isolation than ever before, with healthcare services incredibly stretched. 

Cancer doesn’t stop for anything, so however long this crisis lasts, young people will need our support more than ever.  

The challenge

Our specialist nurses and support teams are working unbelievably hard for young people with cancer. 

At the same time they are being mobilised to help with the national effort to tackle coronavirus. 

So to help them and young people with cancer, we’re moving quickly to create innovative new ways of providing support, including through digital technology, and making sure they get the best possible advice on how Covid-19 may affect them. 

Unfortunately, most of our fundraising activities and events have been cancelled or postponed, including a sold-out week of music and comedy at the Royal Albert Hall. 

How you can help

Many of our supporters have already been in touch asking how they can help us be there for young people with cancer at this toughest of times. 

If you can help, then please do donate today. Whatever you’re able to give will make a difference. 

We cannot let young people with cancer face this crisis alone.
