Teenage Cancer Trust
Cancer sucks. Each day seven young people age 13-24 are diagnosed with cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust is there to make sure they don’t face it alone.
Teenage Cancer Trust provides world-class cancer care and support in specialist units, local hospitals and in homes across the UK. They are there at every stage, from diagnosis through treatment and after, and bring young people together so they can support each other.
The charity gives presentations in schools so young people understand more about cancer and go to the doctors earlier. Their education team also helps medical professionals and politicians understand why young people with cancer need specific support.
Teenage Cancer Trust has come so far but there’s still so much more to do. Right now, for every young person they can reach, there’s another they can’t. But they will not just sit back and accept that, so the charity is expanding their work.
Teenage Cancer Trust is aiming to provide specialist nurses across the UK in order to reach all young people with cancer, no matter where they live. To do this they will need to raise £20 million a year, every year, by 2020.
