The Mellor March supports Young Lives vs Cancer

Community is at the heart of The Mellor March and we are VERY happy to announce that The Mellor March will be supporting Young Lives vs Cancer this year.

When cancer strikes young lives, Young Lives vs Cancer helps families limit the damage cancer causes beyond their health. Sadly, every day in this country, 12 families hear the most frightening news that their child has cancer. Young Lives vs Cancer are there from the beginning of treatment right through to the end, and beyond.

Last year, Young Lives vs Cancer social workers supported 514 children and young people with cancer and their families from Greater Manchester and the wider region. Our social workers provided each of these young people, and their families, with a range of emotional, practical and financial support.

Excitingly, Young Lives vs Cancer also opened ‘Jack’s House’ in Manchester, a ‘home from home’ where young people and their families can stay when travelling into the city for treatment. Jack’s House means families can stay together during their child’s treatment, without having to worry about daily travels to and from the hospital and all the stresses and strains that this brings.

Join us on April 30th as we walk the Mellor boundary (shorter routes for little legs available too!), and enjoy a family fun-filled day out whilst raising money for Young Lives Vs Cancer and other cancer causes in the community.
