Young people with cancer
The needs of young people with cancer differ from those of children and older people. They contract some of the most aggressive cancers, which can be made worse by their growth spurts. Furthermore, they are often misdiagnosed – decreasing their chances of survival, and excluding them from clinical trials.
Our campaign is calling on the international community to recognize, act, and improve cancer care for young people. By supporting the International Charter of Rights for Young People with Cancer, you can help improve the lives and survival rates of young people with cancer across the world.
We will work on an international level, petitioning governments to sign the Charter and collaborating with hospitals and research centers to adopt the Charter.
