Celebrate your

Yorkshire Star

this Christmas

This Christmas, Yorkshire Cancer Research would like to join with you in celebrating the person who, in your eyes, is a Yorkshire Star.

It might be a star of celebration for someone who has recovered from cancer. Perhaps it’s in recognition of someone living with cancer. You may choose to remember someone special who is sadly no longer with you. Whoever you choose, you will be joining with people across Yorkshire in seeing their star shining brightly.

Help us light up 2,000 lives.

Let your Yorkshire Star shine

Four-year-old Edith chose to dedicate a star to her friend Max, who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in September 2020.

After a difficult few months, this incredible little boy went into remission in April and is now back at nursery and enjoying life again!

Share your Yorkshire Star far and wide using the hashtag #YorkshireStar and join with others from across the region in celebrating and remembering those closest to you.
