Information For You
Find out more about the symptoms of cancer, starting treatment, and living with cancer for you and your loved ones.
Worried you might have cancer?
The first thing to remember if you’re worried you have cancer is that you’re not alone. The realities of cancer can make you scared, anxious, sad or angry – and we are here to help.
Starting cancer treatment
We understand that you may be feeling anxious, upset or confused at this time. Our helpful guides will talk you through the basics of your treatment, as well as the help you can get from local healthcare services.
Living with cancer?
Whether you’re going through treatment or supporting somebody with cancer, York Against Cancer is here to help. Discover more from our online resources.
We're always looking for volunteers to help us out, whether it's running our shops or organising a local fundraising event. Discover more ways you can help us to find lifesaving research and care.
