There are so many misconceptions about cancer, and that’s the whole point of the You, Me and the Big C podcast - to bust some of the myths. We're proud to share it on our website to help raise awareness of the important issues young adults face when going through and beyond cancer. 

The #youmebigc team are Rachael Bland aka ‘Big C, Little Me' – well known to BBC Radio 5 live and BBC audiences as a news presenter. Rachael has been in continuous treatment for recurrent breast cancer for a year. Rachael's story is here

Deborah James aka ‘Bowelbabe’ – Stage 4 Bowel Cancer doesn’t stop Deborah from getting to the party. This glamorous 35-year-old mum of two has even been known to drink champagne during chemo! See Deborah's story

Lauren "Lolli" Mahon aka ‘Girl vs Cancer’ – Lolli was already a successful lifestyle blogger, so when cancer came calling at the age of 31, she styled it out by setting up a new community for young women with cancer. Lauren's story is here

"Trekstock found me very early on in my cancer ‘journey’ and the network has since formed a large chunk of my support system. During the darkest time of my life the incredible team at Trekstock have held my hand and I’ll never be able to repay them for what they have done for me." Lauren

"Being diagnosed with cancer in your 20’s + 30’s comes with it’s own unique and complicated set of challenges. I mean deciding if you want kids because you’re facing the menopause at 32 is a LOL when your love life is drier than a Jacobs. But Trekstock work tirelessly to provide social and practical support in a relevant light-hearted way that young adults can easily digest. Whether it be a Facebook Live discussion about dating after cancer, social events where you meet other younguns dealing with the c-bomb or using their RENEW scheme to get you safely back into exercise." Lauren
