A new community for 16 to 24-year-olds who have, or have had, cancer.
Share experiences, make friends, find information
Our Online Community is for 16 to 24-year-olds who have, or have had, cancer.
Here you can share experiences, make friends, find useful information and support each other through difficult times.
Join the community to discuss your experience with 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
Community members can join our Ask The Expert sessions, a chance for you to ask questions and get them answered by a professional live on the community.
Our first ever session was on Tuesday 1 December and the topic was relationships and sex. Our expert Matt Whyman answered questions on the night - you can see the questions community members posted along with our answers here.
On Thursday 12 May, we held another Ask The expert on friendships, again with Matt Whyman tackling the questions.
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 your computer. So, wherever you are, you can speak to other young people in the same situation as you.
As one of our community members put it:
“For me personally, when I was diagnosed I was on my own on an adult ward. 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. It can be isolating, especially if you can’t leave hospital.
It’s very easy to post and read messages on the community.’’
