Why we exist

The Chad Hancock Cancer Foundation for Young Adults was established in 2005, in memory of Chad Hancock. Chad was a young adult who battled with cancer for 4 years before passing away on the 29th of June 2004 at the age of 22.

During Chad’s journey it became clear that whilst there was support to help some groups through their own unique experience, it became evident that there was little, if any specific or relevant support to help young adults through their cancer journey.

There are many services provided for people with breast cancer or prostate cancer and for children who are unfortunate enough to become ill.

However, young adults who are faced with some of the most daunting life decision such as puberty, leaving home, finding a career, starting a family and even finding their own identity have no support network to turn to when faced with life changing decisions. Physical and psychological support is an essential part of treatment and recovery from any chronic disease and the youth of our society should not be deprived of such support.

Our Mission

The mission of the Chad Hancock Cancer Foundation is to provide funding to assist in the development of support services and programs for young adults. We wish to continue to work with and support other charities who are working with our core age group (18 to 28) and by providing funds to various charities it is hoped that support can be provided to many young adults who are faced with not only life changing decisions but also life threatening decisions concerning their treatment and health.
