With your support, Teenage Cancer Trust can help more young people like me
“Being treated on the Teenage Cancer Trust unit made a massive difference to me, as it helped me to stay positive. There’s a real family atmosphere that made me feel safe and comfortable during my long stays in hospital.” Kim, 18, bone cancer
Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for young people between the ages of 13 and 24 who have cancer.
We rely completely on donations to fund our vital work. Nothing we do would be possible without the generosity and support of people like you.
Every day around seven young people are diagnosed with cancer and we want to make sure they all have access to the specialist care and support we provide, no matter where they live. We know we can make this happen with your help.
We can challenge cancer together. Please get involved today.
Why we need your support
You can help us provide the best possible care and professional support to more young people with cancer.
Over 24 years we have learnt a lot about what it’s like to be a young person with cancer - their unique emotional, physical and practical needs. Because we understand, we can provide better care, better services and hopefully a more positive outcome for young people with cancer.
Teenage Cancer Trust units bring young people together, to be treated by teenage cancer experts in an environment that's tailored to meet their needs. It costs between £500,000 and £3,500,000 depending on the nature, size and location to build and equip a new unit.
We also need to make sure units include everything young people need to be kept fully occupied and entertained during their stay - whether it's an Xbox, a flatscreen TV, wifi access or simply a pool table.
Our expert team
We also fund frontline staff such as Youth Support Co-ordinators and a team of Nurses all specialists in the care and support of young people with cancer.
We rely completely on donations from the public to fund our work. Please make a donation or sign up for a regular gift today.
