The latest Christie Crew campaign is called ‘Sometimes It’s Cancer’ or S.I.C. for short.

The Christie Crew have produced an extraordinary film alerting young people to the symptoms of cancer.

p>The Christie Crew are a group of 16-24 year old young people who are, or have been treated for cancer at ‘The Christie’ hospital in Manchester.

The group consists of 15 patients, past and present. They work on various projects that involve presenting at conferences (regional and national), working with the Teenage Cancer Trust, CLICSargent and MacMillan as a consultation group, various media work (Radio, TV, magazines, newspapers etc) and projects to try to help improve services for 16-24 year olds who are being treated for cancer, and issues that affect young people in this age group in the hospital, wider community and nationally.

The group is formal, with agendas and meeting minutes being circulated. The young people are very dedicated and work on projects in their own time away from the group. When they leave the group they are accredited with a certificate for their personal CV/portfolio.

You can view this DVD here. If you have any further questions, want any more information or would like your school/college/youth service to show this DVD in health awareness sessions, please contact lorraine.case@christie.nhs.uk or call 0161 918 7034.

These symptoms are very often ignored or misunderstood both by young people and health care professionals. The film is to be circulated to as many schools, youth services and young people as possible so that they have a good understanding of the main symptoms of cancer and are made aware that it does affect people their age.
