By young people, for young people

The BRIGHTLIGHT Young person’s Advisory Panel (YAP) includes young people who have a previous diagnosis of cancer. Some have been involved from the beginning when the project was being developed and others have joined more recently. The YAP play an essential role in advising the research team project on all aspects of study management. Young people are integral in the development and management of all our work to ensure our ultimate aim is achieved: “To make living with cancer more bearable for young people and to ensure they are able to do the things they wanted to do before they had cancer”
