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 affected by cancer

Star Throwers is a cancer support charity in Norfolk dedicated to supporting people affected by cancer. We advise cancer patients and their carers on standard and non-conventional cancer treatment options, including clinical trials, and provide complementary therapies and counselling to support their wellbeing whilst living with cancer, undergoing cancer treatment, or caring from someone with cancer.

We support people at any stage of their journey - whether they have just been diagnosed, are undergoing treatment, or have a late-stage or terminal cancer and have been told "there is nothing left that can be done" for them.

Find out more about What We Do and our Services and Facilities.
