CATTS We’re the charity here to ensure more young people know the signs and symptoms of cancer, whatever their background. We’re passionate about young people feeling empowered about their own health. Dragonfly Cancer Trust We work with specialist cancer treatment centres, hospitals, hospices and families across the UK providing support for young cancer patients under the age of 25 with a palliative diagnosis. Our focus is on memory making, helping young patients to make each moment matter with their loved ones. We do this by providing Cash Gifts, keepsakes and creative therapy. Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers are continuously inspired by the young people we support. Teenage Cancer Trust Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words “you have cancer”. They will each need specialised nursing care and support to get them through it. We’re the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need – so no young person faces cancer alone. We fund specialised nurses, youth workers and hospital units in the NHS, so young people have dedicated staff and facilities to support them throughout treatment. We run events for young people with cancer to help them regain independence and meet other young people going through something similar. We also provide easy-to-understand information about every aspect of living with cancer as a young person.
