how can we help you?

Helping brighten young lives

Tanya Billing, a courageous 17-year old, fought Adult Acute Myeloid Leukaemia with courage and determination. In the last 20 months of her short life, she expressed the wish to help others. Tanya's Courage Trust aims to do just that.

As a charity offering financial help and support to young people fighting Cancer aged 16 to 25 in Cornwall, we'll do our best to help you through the tough times.

If there's anything you and your family need, let us know. It could be a special day out, a nice meal, or perhaps some new games to ease the boredom.

We can also offer financial assistance if that's what's needed most
