Why bother...(support for young people)

Why bother finding out more about cancer? Because over 2 million people in the UK have been diagnosed with cancer, so a lot of children and young people will know someone affected by it.

'Why Bother...' is a website for young people affected by cancer.  The site (provided by Macmillan Cancer Support) is divided into easy-to-use zones.

For more information about 'Why Bother...' please visit the website. 

Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the UK's biggest cancer charities. It focuses on helping people with cancer and their friends and families - because cancer is an illness that affects a lot of people in a variety of ways - physically, emotionally, and even financially.
