What Do Young Lives Vs Cancer Do?
Young Lives vs Cancer is the UK’s leading charity for children and young people with cancer. They help children, young people (0-25) and their families find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them.
Their social workers offer specialist, empowering support to help families face the emotional impact as well as the financial impact of a cancer diagnosis. They do whatever they can to help them face cancer, whether that’s liaising with children’s schools, young people’s universities and parents’ employers, helping families to access financial grants and support or to be that listening ear.
The charity’s ten Homes from Home across the UK provide families with a free place to stay nearby to the child’s hospital. This means families can be together in the toughest of times and avoid the cost of travelling to and from hospital, which can often be miles away from home.
