Youth Cancer Europe was founded by Katie and Shajjad Rizvi together with Sarunas Narbutas and was set up as an officially registered foundation by the Romanian Little People Cancer Charity in 2015.

Our network is made up of individuals and/or organisations representing young people affected by cancer.

Membership is free and open for any cancer patient and cancer survivor between the ages of 18 and 39.
