World Cancer Day

Thank you to everyone who banded together for young lives against cancer on  World Cancer Day, 4 February 2018.

World Cancer Day

Our supporters banded together for young cancer patients by wearing Band Against Cancer wristbands on World Cancer Day.

Our bands may still be available, for a suggested £2 donation, at some Morrisons stores, J D Wetherspoon pubs and select H Samuel and Ernest Jones stores, until stocks last!

There are three colours to collect - plum, teal and grey. We have sold out online.

On World Cancer Day, Sunday 4 February, our corporate partner Morrisons held its biggest ever fundraiser for young lives against cancer. If you would like give, please donate online.

Many of our supporters from all over the UK fundraised on the day. Thank you to everyone for making such a difference to children and young people with cancer. Find out how to pay in your fundraising.

Hidden costs

On World Cancer Day CLIC Sargent highlighted the hidden costs of cancer and the importance of banding together.

Our Hidden Costs report reveals a cancer diagnosis often affects a young person's mental health, not just their physical health. 79% of young people we surveyed felt cancer had a serious impact on their emotional wellbeing , while 70% of young people experienced depression during their cancer treatment.

"Cancer breaks your self-esteem and leaves you emotionally fragile... if only everybody could understand this like CLIC Sargent does." A young cancer patient.

Getting support from others was crucial. 87% of young people said the support they received from CLIC Sargent Social Workers, psychological services and online was vital in dealing with the emotional impact of cancer and 73% said talking to others with similar experiences helped them to cope.  Read more from our report

How CLIC Sargent helps 

Our CLIC Sargent care teams support young cancer patients emotionally, building their resilience so they can continue to learn, regain their confidence and self-belief and be inspired to think beyond cancer.
