Young Lives vs Cancer Charity



Young Lives vs Cancer is this year's HCSA charity and you can support them at the EIS conference and awards.

YLvC is a fantastic charity that provides support to children and young adults who are diagnosed with cancer.

One of the services that YLvC provides is Homes from Home, which are houses that families can utilise while their children are going through their cancer treatment. These houses are a huge benefit to families who are going through extremely challenging times.

YLvC will be at the EIS regional events, HCSA Women’s Network Conference and National Conference in November to raise awareness of its work, but also importantly, to raise vital funds for the services it provides.
