Young Lives vs Cancer
Helping children and young people with cancer
Young Lives vs Cancer (previously CLIC Sargent) is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. It is the only organisation to provide social care, as well as clinical, practical and emotional support to families to help them cope with cancer and live life to the full. Young Lives vs Cancer is there from diagnosis onwards, aiming to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
More needs to be done to empower young cancer patients, help them cope with the shock of diagnosis and intense treatment, and help them deal with the emotional, practical and financial impact of cancer. With your help, Young Lives vs Cancer wants to realise a vision of the world where all children and young people with cancer live life to the full. Pennies donations made at Young Lives vs Cancer’s own stores and through corporate partners have helped begin to make this vision a reality.
