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

Schools and Colleges, We need your help! 

We are currently booking appointments for our diary to come and talk in schools and colleges about the work we do as a charity. As we supprt 16-25 year olds, we feel it is vital that we make our age group aware of what we do to help raise awareness of the charity.

If you are a school or college interested in us coming to talk to your students, please call Iris Billing on 01726 65364 to book an appointment.
