A community for 16 to 24-year-olds who have, or have had, cancer.
Share experiences, ask questions, find information
Our Online Community is for 16 to 24-year-olds who have, or have had, cancer.
It's a place to share experiences, make friends, find useful information and support each other through difficult times.
Join the Community to discuss your experiences of cancer and its impact on your life, or anything else that interests you, such as films, music, and plans for the future.
"This is a great support community while you are having treatment and after."
Ask The Expert
The Community runs regular Ask the Expert sessions. These cover a range of topics from friendship to relationships to mood. They are a chance for you to ask your questions on that topic and receive expert advice.
4 - 8 December - Life after cancer
We’re having a very special Ask the Expert young people’s takeover session, focussing on life after treatment. Our new Community Champions will be our experts for the week and they’ll be answering your questions on life after cancer.
You can ask anything related to life beyond treatment, including going back to work or education, relationships, friendships, mental or physical health.
Post your question using #aftercancerexpert.
In previous Ask the Expert sessions, our expert Matt Whyman has answered questions from Community members on topics such as relationships and sex, friendship, mood and mental wellbeing.
Community members can suggest future Ask The Expert topics by using the hashtag #suggestion.
Access the Online Community wherever you are
Our Online Community is designed to be mobile-friendly, so you can access it from your smartphone or tablet, as well as from your computer. Wherever you are, you can speak to other young people who may have had similar experiences.
“I only met one other young person with cancer while I was going through treatment so I didn’t get the opportunity to speak with other young people in the same situation very often."
