Coronavirus has hit young people with cancer hard and disrupted our services, but we’re doing everything we can to adapt.

We’re keeping young people with cancer connected – with our specialist nurses, our youth support teams, and each other.

We’re making sure young people still get one-to-one emotional support with regular texts, video chats and virtual groups.

And we’re still getting young people through the toughest time of their lives, every day.

Whatever the crisis, we won’t stop – can’t stop – being there for young people with cancer.

Egon in hospital

I’ve just finished my sixth chemo cycle and next month (September 2020), I’ll have a scan to see what’s next. Things can be uncertain at times and it demands a lot from me – I think I’ve kind of got used to being resilient.

Ruby playing the guitar and with friends and family during her treatment

During treatment I’d jotted down lyrics here and there about what was happening to me. As I had to shield at home during the pandemic, I had more time on my hands, and I started to put them together to music.
