Changes to information from TIC
A lot of the information in this section used to live on a website called Teen Info on Cancer - or TIC. We decided to move it to a new home here, to help us to help more teens and young adults affected by cancer.
We closed TIC in September 2012, and moved our information for teens and young people living with cancer over here, to Macmillan's main website.
Why make these changes?
When we first launched TIC in 2005, it was because we felt there was a real lack of information about cancer that was specifically for younger people. We wanted to give people a space of their own to learn more about cancer, and to connect with others in the same situation.
As time has gone on, the website technology behind TIC became more and more out of date, and it couldn't give people the kind of experience they should expect from Macmillan. But we are still committed to providing information and support services to everyone affected by cancer.
Where can teens and young adults find cancer information?
Find expert information here, speak to other young people who are 16-24 and living with cancer in our Online Community or talk to us. Moving the TIC information and discussion forum to our main site means that we can really improve the quality of what we can offer to teens and young people living with cancer. We can provide more up to date information, a better online community, and most importantly, the chance to benefit from the exciting developments in our website that will be seen in the near future.
If you have any questions or comments about this new information or with any queries relating to the old TIC site, please email us.
