Around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word 'cancer.' We're the only charity dedicated to making this happen.
Over 21 years Teenage Cancer Trust has learnt a lot about what it's like to be a young person with cancer - their unique emotional, physical and practical needs. Because Teenage Cancer Trust understands, they can provide better care, better services and hopefully a more positive outcome for young people.
Without the work of Teenage Cancer Trust, young people with cancer would be treated alongside children or elderly patients at the end of their lives. Being away from your normal life, friends and environment at such a vulnerable time is the last thing they need.
We want every young person with cancer to have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live. We're dedicated to making it happen, but we need your support to do it.
