UK My Parents Cancer is an Australian website specifically for young people whose mum or another loved one has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Some of the information will also be of relevance if their mum or dad or someone they know has been diagnosed with another form of cancer.

Check out our website for details of groups and other events.
UK Macmillan Cancer Support has created a handbook especially for young carers aged 12-18 which you can download, called ' Let’s talk about you'.
It’s based on experiences of young people who have been there and covers some of the practical issues you might face when caring for someone with cancer.
It also gives information and advice on coping with feelings, looking after yourself, and where to find support.
Macmillan Cancer Support has also produced a short film about experiences of being a young carer.
It's called "Young people caring for someone with cancer" and there's also a booklet on the topic.
You can download the booklets and view the video from the links above.
Please get in touch if there is anything that you'd like to talk through with us here at riprap. Hope Support Services offers support to young people aged 11 and over when a close family member is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.
In Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, we offer youth sessions and monthly trips where the young people get the chance to meet other people their age going through the same thing, share new experiences and chat to Hope's professional team at the same time. Find Hope on Facebook and Twitter or visit our website.
UK Don't forget the kids is a voluntary organisation which aims to provide self-help support groups for children who have parents/carers living with cancer.
