About us Our story Our Story Hello. We Are Trekstock Founded in 2009, we’re a small but vital (and some would say perfectly formed) UK charity and we work to support the needs of young adults in their 20s and 30s who have been diagnosed with cancer. Community is at the heart of what we do and we offer programmes to connect our community with other young adults living with cancer or going through cancer treatment as well as providing practical, expert advice on the topics that matter and offering information and services to get you active along the way. We know that cancer comes with a complicated set of physical and emotional challenges that can put your life on hold. It’s lonely and isolating and we recognise the impact it can have not just at the treatment stage, but through life after cancer. That’s why we’re here. When cancer hits you in the prime of your life, we’re here to help you take back control over your physical and emotional wellbeing, create meaningful connections with others and make positive lasting changes to aid recovery and rebuild your life after cancer. “Trekstock offers support that’s accessible and appropriate, something that has been impossible to find. They’re building up my confidence for whatever comes in the future.” Our needs-led support programmes continue to be designed, developed and closely monitored by our growing team, alongside people from the community. Not only do we want to support young adults with cancer, but we want to pass the mic and allow their voices to be heard. By working closely with the community, we can better support those living with cancer, assisting them to thrive through and beyond a diagnosis, in the ways they are telling us they need. Every day, 34 young adults are diagnosed with cancer. Every day we learn there is more to do, but we are more committed than ever to helping change the game for young adults living with and beyond cancer. No young adult should ever have to face cancer alone. That’s why we’re here.
