The Trust is joining forces with many other charities worldwide on the 4th February to raise awareness of World Cancer Day. The theme this year is taking place under the tagline ‘We can. I can’ which explores how everyone – as a collective or as individuals – can unite to support those affected by cancer.
To imagine a future – WE CAN. I CAN.
Each day ten children and young people learn they have cancer – 80% will be long-term survivors yet their cancer can have lifelong consequences. Thankfully survival rates are increasing but there remains a void between treatment and young people re-discovering a normal life – this is the gap the Trust fills.
Once treatment ends our work begins…
Only after treatment ends, and the doctors and nurses have done their incredible work, can a young person start rebuilding their life following the devastation of cancer.
Thoughts of the future – careers, family, friendships – can feel terrifying, hopeless even. They shouldn’t with your support on world cancer day ‘We can. I can.’ Provide the bridge between treatment and a young person seizing the future they may never have imagined possible.
The difference a trip makes
WE CAN. I CAN. Do something for the Trust
