People we love - Shine Cancer support
Shine Cancer Support is the only charity in the UK that is exclusively focused on supporting adults in their 20s, 30s and 40s who have experienced cancer. Shine was started, and is run, by people who have themselves had cancer as a young adult – so they know what it’s like. Shine started as an informal support group in 2008 and now has 11 support networks around England and Wales. Shine also runs workshops and events which aim to fill the support and information gap that so many young adults with cancer face.
