My story

[p]In 2017, you all helped me raise almost £4,200 (including Gift Aid) when I trekked in Namibia. Thank you! There’s a report of the trek at [url=http://www.trekraise.com/namibiareport17.pdf]http://www.trekraise.com/namibiareport17.pdf[/url] [/p][p]This year, I’ll be undertaking my 17th trek for Teenage Cancer Trust. This time it’s in the Western Ghat mountains in South India, and includes tackling Meesapulimala, the second highest peak in the mountain range at 2,640m (8,660ft). [/p][p]Teenage Cancer Trust makes sure young people don't face cancer alone. It does this by helping young people and their families deal with the many ways that cancer can affect your body, your mind and your life. [/p][p]The charity does this in partnership with the NHS, and by bringing young people together so they can support each other. And it does it from the moment cancer is diagnosed until long after treatment is over. [/p][p]Teenage Cancer Trust makes sure young people with cancer always have someone to turn to. The 28 purpose-built NHS units across the UK are at the core of the work. They're designed to feel more like a home than a hospital ward. They're comfortable and contemporary, rather than simply clinical. And they bring young people together, because talking to someone who knows what you're going through is a vital way of feeling less alone and more normal. [/p][p]The units form central hubs in each UK region - as new teams of expert staff increasingly travel to other hospitals and to young people's homes to make sure they reach everyone who needs them, wherever the young person lives. [/p][p]And as well as being there for young people after diagnosis, Teenage Cancer Trust also spreads the word about the impact of cancer on young people in all sorts of ways. It does presentations in schools, helps medical professionals and politicians to understand why young people with cancer need specific support, and publishes a wide range of no-nonsense information resources. [/p][p]This year I’m aiming to raise at least £3,500 plus Gift Aid – so please don’t forget to tick the Gift Aid box as long as you pay tax in the UK. [/p][p]Thank you for your support![/p]
