Today in the UK, 12 children and young people will receive the devastating news of a cancer diagnosis. For them and their families, this means a world turned upside down. Their cancer requires specialised treatment, often far from home, disrupting education and their wellbeing.

Young Lives vs Cancer is the sole UK charity offering tailored support through dedicated social workers. Rachel Kirby-Rider, the charity’s Chief Executive, sits down with ITN Business as part of our Shaping the Future of Cancer Care programme, launched earlier this year, to discuss the profound impact of cancer on young lives and the crucial need for support.
