We came together for #WorldCancerDay

Strength, hope, unity, friendship. These four words mean a lot to young cancer patients and their families. They bring much-needed positivity to help them through the toughest times. On World Cancer Day 2021 we celebrated these small but mighty words. Because nothing can take them away from us, no matter what life throws our way.

Come together for young lives

You can still buy a limited edition keyring to show you stand with Young Lives vs Cancer.

Strength. Hope. Unity. Friendship.

Stand with young lives against cancer. Together we're unstoppable.

STRENGTH, HOPE, UNITY, FRIENDS

These four powerful words were selected by Sam and Enna. Two young people who have been supported by Young Lives vs Cancer. They mean a lot to them and we’re pretty sure they must mean a lot to you too. We’ve all experienced some tough times over the last year and without these things, our journey would be a lot harder.

Sam

Diagnosed with a acute lymphoblastic leukaemia at 11 years old.

“‘Strength’ and ‘unity’ sum up the most important things that have got me through the last few years. I know I’m stronger after cancer, I can achieve almost anything if I try.”

For as long as he can remember, Sam has wanted to become a professional artist. Painting and drawing was a release to get him through his treatment – something he could do from home, despite being tired a lot of the time and not being able to attend school much. Looking to the positives and how he could use his skills for good, Sam started designing posters for the hospital ward and creating designs for Young Lives vs Cancer’s partnership with Morrisons.

Sam’s now in his final year of high school and is taking three art-related GCSEs. He is positive about the future and hopes to attend Central Saint Martins, one of the best universities of arts in the world.

Enna

Diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was seven years old.

These words helped me throughout my cancer journey and inspired me to fight through it. I hope they bring everyone hope and strength at a time we need it most.

Enna’s treatment was lengthy but during that time, ‘hope’ in particular had a special meaning to her. She remembers that it was how Young Lives vs Cancer made her feel – hopeful and positive for the future.

Today Enna, now 17 years old, is making the most of her creative talents and is looking to the future. She is studying production arts at college with hopes to do this as a career later in life.
