ABOUT THE EVENT:

Life in your 20s and 30s is hard enough, let alone with cancer.

We know each cancer experience is different, so remember some of the things you may hear during this event you may want to bank for later or may not be right for you.

A LITTLE ABOUT HEATHER AND HELEN:

Heather lives outside Edinburgh with her husband and two sausage dogs, Parsnip and Pumpkin. She was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2014 and after being in remission for 4 years, she was diagnosed with brain cancer. 

She wanted to become a Champion to help raise the profile of Trekstock and ensure other young adults felt connected, as there aren't a huge number of people who fully appreciate cancer limbo. There are even fewer people who are at a similar age who fully understand how cancer touches every aspect of life.

Helen lives in Bristol with my miniature labradoodle Luna. She was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma shortly after her 28th Birthday. She underwent 7 months of chemotherapy which successfully treated her cancer.

She wanted to become a Trekstock Champion to help raise the profile of the charity and ensure other young adults can start feeling connected so that they know there are others who understand how they feel. 

*Just so you know, no medical advice will be provided during this event, if you having any questions regarding your treatment please speak to your oncology team*
