North West Appeal
Teenage Cancer Trust's North West Appeal is aiming to raise £250,000 to fund a pioneering new nursing and support outreach service for young people living with cancer in the North West. We know that not every young person with cancer is given the choice or chance to receive the essential and specialist support that Teenage Cancer Trust offers and we desperately need to change this. The pilot service will see Teenage Cancer Trust providing expert care to young cancer patients in 19 local hospitals across Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and South Cumbria.
For the first time young people with cancer in the North West will be able to have access to this service which will provide support for patients and their families throughout treatment. The team will ensure that they are treated as a young person first and a cancer patient second, providing not only the best clinical care but involvement in social activities which is key to enabling them to meet other young people going through the same experience.

Our work is only made possible by fundraising and we rely on the generous support of individuals, companies, schools and community groups.

Nicola, 23, from Cumbria was diagnosed with an abdominal tumour earlier this year.
After weeks of excruciating pain and tests, she was diagnosed at Lancashire Hospital. Nicola said: “It was a huge shock finding out I had a tumour. There was so much information to take in and it was hard to digest. Then Louise, my Teenage Cancer Trust nurse got involved and everything changed. She came with me to appointments and explained the medical jargon to me and my family so we could understand what was happening and why. She’s amazing and I couldn’t have stayed positive over the past few months without her.”More
Daisychain Benevolent Fund Trust
“We are delighted to announce that Daisychain Benevolent Fund Trust charity shops will be supporting Teenage Cancer Trust. Pop into one of the high street shops and grab a bargain, take along some of your unwanted items for sale, or volunteer at one of the shops.
The aim of the Daisychain Benevolent Fund Trust Charity is the preservation of health and the relief of sickness in the community. It donates grants raised from the Daisychain Benevolent Fund chain of shops and general fundraising activities. The causes that they support do not operate their own charity shops due to resources, knowledge or written constitution. By working closely with the nominated causes they are able to make a positive additional contribution to the work of the organisations. Daisychain are very pleased to announce that from September 2013 this will now include the Teenage Cancer Trust Charity.
