We fight Cancer
in young people

We help young cancer patients like Sarah and Jacob

We raise money to support 13 – 24-year-olds fighting cancer by funding medical and social research specifically into cancers that affect that age group and funding support projects for young cancer patients.

About Us

We support young people with cancer through targeted cancer research and support projects to help alleviate feelings of loneliness and isolation.

Our Story

Donate today to give them a tomorrow

Our research is funded under the Jacquie Roeder Research Fund, in memory of Laura’s mum who set up the charity in 1996. Before the founding of Laura’s Trust there was no funding for research into cancer in 13-24-year-olds.
