Every day 34 young adults are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. Whilst their survival rates continue to improve, the physical and emotional impact of cancer remains life long. There are currently almost 140,000 people putting their life together after a cancer diagnosis in their 20s and 30s.

Teenage and young adults health services end at the age of 25, despite the fact that isolation and symptoms of PTSD are widely reported amongst this demographic. Trekstock exists to provide the relevant social and practical support needed to this under-supported age group to ensure that no young adult has to face cancer alone.

Scroll down for Trekstock’s favourite 50/50 tees:

Ashia Redhead, Community Fundraiser

 

Kyle Platts, because in today’s society we often forget to use our full brain capacity, and rely on technology to do things for us. Use your brain!

Sophie Epstone, Founder & CEO

With aqua being Trekstock’s colour, it has got to be Lucinda Ireland’s awesome Stay Lucky tee.

Kelly Carter, Corporate Fundraiser

I like What Katie Drew, the simple design followed by the beautiful quote resonated with me – love everyone’s imperfections.

Jemima Reynolds, Health Support Officer

I love the colourful and bold Studio Moross print. They are long term friends of Trekstock and never fail to amaze us with their creativity.

Ellie Holland, Project & Comms Coordinator

Sam Taylor’s design is a little bit bananas (literally) and I love it.

Sara Thomas, Health Programmes & Communications Manager

I like the Thomas Hedger design because it captures that lovely feeling of being relaxed on holidays.

“We’re so grateful to Everpress – in collaborating with all these incredible designers, you’re not just raising vital funds but awareness for Trekstock. By uniting together, you’re helping us to ensure that no young adult has to face cancer alone.” – Sophie Epstone, Founder & CEO
