Share your story


Every person facing cancer has a powerful, meaningful story. We regularly work alongside families who wish to share theirs with others. It helps us raise awareness of our services in the community and to inspire our generous donors. Families also tell us that hearing the experiences of others can help them feel less alone.


Whether you're a young person with a diagnosis, a friend or a family member - and whatever stage you're at on the cancer journey - we'd be honoured to hear what you have to say. You can read what others have shared with us here.


Once you've submitted your story, we'll contact you to discuss the different ways we can communicate it. We won’t publish anything you write without discussing it with you first.


If you find this process brings up strong emotions and you’d like to talk to someone, or if you have any questions, please get in touch on 1800 REDKITE (1800 733 548) or
