Teenage Cancer Trust
Who we are
Young people shouldn’t face cancer alone. We make sure they don’t.
That means providing treatment and support for young people in one of our comfortable, contemporary specialist cancer wards, or travelling to other hospitals and to young people's homes to make sure we reach everyone who needs us, wherever they live.
We also spread the word about the impact of cancer on young people. We do presentations in schools, we help medical professionals and politicians to understand why young people with cancer need specific support, and we publish a wide range of information resources.
We make sure that we're there for young people from the moment cancer is diagnosed until long after treatment is over. Our events and support help young people figure out what normal looks like now, whether it's helping young people return to work or school, or giving advice about dealing with long-term side effects.
Right now, for every young person we reach, there’s another we can’t. We don’t accept that. So we’re expanding our work, but we need your help to get there. We’re determined to reach every young person with cancer in the UK – and to make sure they’re supported by experts in young people’s cancer from the moment they're diagnosed.
