Every day in the UK, 38 young adults in their 20s and 30s are diagnosed with cancer.

Over the past three decades, cancer rates for 25-29 year-olds have risen faster than for any other age group. Their survival rates are better than ever, but the physical and emotional impact of cancer remains life-long.


The problem is that teenage and young adult cancer services end at 25. And with 50% of cancer diagnoses affecting people over 70, they are usually the youngest person on the ward by decades. And often the only one in their peer group to be living with cancer. There are more than 120,000 of them in the UK, with 12,500 more every year. We are committed to making sure that no young adult must face cancer alone. 

We bring them together online and in the real world, help them get and stay active, provide practical advice and social opportunities. Our tailored support programmes tackle social isolation, improve quality of life and give young adults a better chance of living well with and beyond cancer.

Donate now and help us provide young adults with the tools they need to get moving after cancer has stopped them in their tracks.
