Story

This cause is close to my heart, having overcome cancer in childhood. The support and care I received from Birmingham children's hospital was second to none during the gruelling 12 months of treatment, and I was fortunate to come out the other side. My wish is for all people affected by cancer, especially the young, to survive and thrive.

Wish me strength and positive vibes as I take on this 25km challenge along the Jurassic Coast. Having only run a few park runs I'm going to need it! All and any donations are greatly appreciated to help young people affected by cancer. Thank you, Emma xx

Cancer is shocking, overwhelming, isolating… and completely unfair. Especially when you’re young. It takes over your life. Treatment is gruelling and your ambitions and dreams suddenly seem very far away.

That’s why Young Lives vs Cancer fights tirelessly to stop cancer destroying young lives. They provide grants and free accommodation close to hospital to help with spiralling costs. Their care teams are on hand to help families with everything from getting benefits to treatment closer to home. And they lobby the government to make sure they get the support they’re entitled to. They're here to make sure young cancer patients can focus on getting their lives back on track.
