After a heavy storm, a boy walked along the beach throwing the stranded starfish back into the sea.

A man watching shouted "there are too many of them - it won’t make any difference."

As the boy threw another starfish back into the sea, he smiled and replied "it made a difference to that one!"

Welcome to Star Throwers - supporting people living with cancer

Star Throwers is a cancer support charity based in Wymondham, Norfolk dedicated to helping people affected by cancer. We support individuals to make informed decisions about their treatment options, including alternative treatments, and help them search for clinical trials when appropriate.  We also offer complementary therapies, counselling, nutritional advice and lymphoedema support to people with cancer and their loved ones. 

All of our services are completely free of charge but this is only possible thanks to the support of individuals and organisations donating and fundraising to help us to deliver these services and continue to improve the wellbeing of those affected by cancer.

We provide support to people with cancer through:

  • Independent Evidence Based Information on treatment options, including alternative treatments and clinical trials
  • Complementary Therapies for wellbeing, including massage, reflexology, acupuncture, yoga, and hypnotherapy
  • Lymphoedema advice and support for people with, or are at high risk of developing, Lymphoedema

Donate/Help Us

All of the support we provide is completely free of charge, but this is only possible thanks to the support of kind and generous people fundraising and donating to our cause. We are a small local cancer charity that receives no statutory funding. Instead, we depend on individuals and businesses to donate and fundraising so that Star Throwers can provide support to cancer patients and their loved ones.

If you would like to help us support more people with cancer, please visit our Help or Donate page.

It is a handbook for the proactive patient, providing scientific information and the tools to make complex decisions at all stages of treatment. Written by Pan Pantziarka, a Star Throwers' Trustee and cancer research scientist.

All proceeds from the book will go to Star Throwers. The book is available as a paperback or in Kindle format. Click here for more information.
