Why we need your help

Teenage Cancer Trust are delighted to be the chosen charity for the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2018. Virgin Money staff are being encouraged to show their support by raising £200,000, in the lead up to the marathon (2017/18), to help young people with cancer.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer aged between 13 and 24. Teenage Cancer Trust fund and build specialist units in NHS hospitals.

Traditionally treated alongside children or elderly patients, young people can feel extremely isolated, some never meeting another young person with cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust exists to ensure that young people aren’t going through this experience alone.

Teenage Cancer Trust Nurses understand the things that can make a big difference to young people with cancer. Like delaying ward rounds until late morning, so there’s no need to set an early alarm. Or cutting through the medical jargon, so explanations of treatments don’t add unnecessary stress.

Teenage Cancer Trust Youth Support Coordinators are there to help young people and their families cope. Their role entails offering direct advice and support, which could involve issuing a newly diagnosed patient with A Young Person’s Guide to Cancer, so they can read what others told us they wish they’d known. Or bringing young people together for something as simple as a pizza party on the unit.

Unfortunately, at present, for every young person Teenage Cancer Trust are able to reach, there’s another they can’t. We hope our partnership will help change that.

Thanks so much for your support – you’re all legends!
