Naomi Barrow Student, Daughter, Volunteer

Naomi is a student at the University of York who’s passionate about volunteering and getting young people involved in their communities. She believes that it’s played a major part in helping her discover who she is as a person and what she wants to do with her life. It’s allowed her to meet new people and has given her opportunities that she would have never otherwise had.

Her Mum had terminal cancer and died in October 2015, and she feels that a society, we don't talk enough about the effects of cancer on others in the family, or what cancer is really like, particularly for young people. So, she's decided to blog about it.
