Discover how we can help

Star Throwers provides an individually focused support service for cancer patients and their carers.

Star Throwers is a cancer support charity based in Norfolk dedicated to supporting people affected by cancer, from diagnosis through to life after cancer.

We provide cancer information sessions to help people to become well-informed about their cancer and all of their treatment options – including clinical trials and alternative treatments and we help people to manage the effects of their cancer and cancer treatments through our wellbeing support.

All of the support Star Throwers offers is available to cancer patients and carers (age 18+) with any form of cancer at any stage of diagnosis and is completely free of charge, thanks to our amazing donors and supporters.

Why are we called Star Throwers?

After a heavy storm a boy walked along the beach throwing washed up starfish back into the sea.

An old man watching him shouted, ‘There are too many of them. It won’t make any difference.’

As the boy picked up and threw another starfish back into the sea, he smiled and said, ‘It made a difference to that one’.

Thank you and your team for all you great work. I’m starting to think I’m one of those lucky starfish that’s been thrown back.
