Important update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to cancel both the under 18’s and over 18’s Find Your Sense Of Tumour events planned for 19-21 June and 4-6 December 2020. We are immensely disappointed not to be delivering these events this year; however, our priority is the health, wellbeing and safety of the young people and staff who attend the event. We are also working on other exciting opportunities to stay connected to those who might have attended this year’s events, so watch this space.

About Find Your Sense of Tumour

Tell me more

Cancer changes your life. And it may leave you with questions about friendships, relationships, fitness, fertility and lots more. 

So Find Your Sense of Tumour is your chance to have a laugh (and learn a few things!) with 100 other people your age who have (or have had) cancer too. In other words they ‘get you’. No brave face needed. No filter.

You might even meet someone who’s had the same cancer as you.

There’s loads to do. But if you don’t want to sing your heart out at our infamous music quiz, no problem and no pressure. You can just chill and chat instead. 

It was amazing sharing experiences with people my age without having to explain what it is like to have cancer.

Who can attend?

Find Your Sense of Tumor is open to all young people who have/had cancer within the last 5 years.  You don’t need to have been treated on a Teenage Cancer Trust ward to be eligible to attend.  

Also, if you’re aged 13-17, you’ll need permission from your parents/guardian.
