Mel Smith

We learned with great sadness of the untimely death of Mel Smith. Mel was a great friend of Teenage Cancer Trust and freely gave both time and funds to the charity to benefit young people with cancer. We appreciate the devotion Mel showed to this cause and also the generosity of Pam Smith to whom we offer sincere condolences on behalf of the charity, its Chairman, and Trustees, CEO, staff and supporters.
