Rochelle Bugg started blogging about life as a young carer following her mother’s diagnosis with a terminal brain tumour. Having already lost her father to cancer when she was 14, she noticed a lack of support for young people going through what she was.
Rochelle began sharing her experiences as a twenty-something caring for her mum and two younger sisters. She has previously written about caring and bereavement for Daily Mail Online, Huffington Post and Cancer Research UK’s Stand Up To Cancer campaign. She has also appeared on Sky News, BBC Radio 5Live and featured in a short online film for the BBC about dealing with bereavement at a young age.
