Show your support for young cancer patients and their families facing mounting cancer costs and sign our petition to urge the government to create a young cancer patient travel fund: http://bit.ly/2CbspQ2
Dealing with cancer is tough enough without money worries. But #cancercosts young cancer patients, and their families, £600 more every month. When treatment is at its most intense £180 goes on their cancer commute, a 60-mile round trip (on average) travelling to and from hospital for treatment. We’re asking you to sign our petition challenging government to create a travel fund for children and young people with cancer, so they don’t have to worry about mounting travel costs during treatment.
Cancer costs. Together we can change the price tag.

CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children, young people and their families. Our care teams have been providing specialist support across the UK for years.
We know that for young lives, when the doctor says cancer, normal life stops. Cancer affects every part of life – relationships, confidence, money, school, work.
CLIC Sargent care teams will fight tirelessly to limit the damage cancer causes. They will listen, and ask the right questions, so that they can provide the right support, tailored to each young person and family.
This might mean arranging a CLIC Sargent grant or helping young people and families get the benefits they are entitled to. Coordinating care so that some medical procedures can happen at home, or arranging free accommodation in a CLIC Sargent Home from Home. Or helping young cancer patients and families keep in touch with school, college or work to keep life as normal as possible.
CLIC Sargent will also fight for young lives with cancer by taking what they tell us about the impact of cancer on their lives to the government, service providers and policy makers to improve things and make real change happen. https://www.clicsargent.org.uk
