Finding out you have cancer can be a very scary time. We've created this booklet to help you to understand cancer, how it might affect you and the support that's there for you.
You can download the booklet as a PDF [957 kb]|, or order it for free from be.Macmillan|.
At different times you will be able to find the information you need, and hear the experiences of other young people. You could read this booklet cover-to-cover, or you could use it as a reference to dip in and out of. That way you could choose to read about things as you face them, or as you feel ready to.

When I was diagnosed with cancer, it seemed so unfair. I wanted to know why it had happened to me. Of course, there was nothing the doctors could say to this. I just had to accept it. Dan, 20
