We are very excited to announce that You Can will be our chosen charity for 2017. You Can support children and young adults in South East England whose lives have been impacted by cancer. They do not offer medical treatment, but instead provide a more holistic form of support by building self-esteem, encouraging peer support and friendship to help young people during and after their battle with cancer to face the future with increased confidence.
A fantastic team at You Can are on hand to provide this support. Every member is able to fully empathise with those that they help as they have all been affected by cancer in some way.
You Can offer weekend breaks for cancer sufferers and their families, a variety of complementary therapies including reflexology and mindfulness sessions, exercise activities, nutrition information and expert counselling from trained professionals. Anybody can refer a patient who may be able to benefit from You Can’s work, and they also have strong links with Great Ormond Street, Royal Marsden, UCHL and all local Kent hospitals.
We know at The Luke Williams Charitable Trust that friendship, love, family and happiness are the most important things. We are delighted to be supporting a charity that is able to kindle these most precious things for young people and their families at the most difficult of times. You Can!
