Shine Cancer Support was set up to provide support to anyone living with a diagnosis of cancer in their 20s, 30s and 40s. They know that it can be isolating to always be the youngest person in the waiting room and it can also be tough to find information on the topics that matter to younger adults living with cancer such as fertility or returning to work.
Run by young adults with cancer, Shine is a large community and provide both online and in-person support including local social networks, a Facebook group and national events and workshops. Online, Shine share videos, personal experiences, blogs and a podcast and are active on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
