We were thrilled to be chosen as the Sunday Mirror's partner for their 2018 Christmas Charity Appeal. 

As part of the appeal, Sunday Mirror readers were urged to donate to our #GiveAnHour campaign to help fund our specialist nurses and Youth Support Coordinators

Five incredible young people and a Teenage Cancer Trust Clinical Nurse Specialist shared their stories to highlight the vital work we do to support young people with cancer every day.

We want to thank the kind generosity of Sunday Mirror readers who donated an incredible £5,411 throughout the appeal.

These funds will go towards supporting the life-changing care we provide young people and their families before, during and after cancer. 

By supporting the #GiveAnHour campaign, readers helped fund Teenage Cancer Trust Nurses and Youth Support Coordinators who helped to support young people like Owen, Molly, Dionne, Shannon and Demi, who featured in the campaign.

Liz Tait, Director of Fundraising at Teenage Cancer Trust, said, "Having cancer is tough at any age, but as a young person it brings unique challenges. Combining treatment with school, friendships and all the usual challenges of this turbulent time of life means it’s even more important to be treated as an individual, not a diagnosis.

We’re so grateful for the incredible support shown by our supporters and the readers of the Sunday Mirror. By donating to the #GiveAnHour campaign, they will help us to continue supporting young people with cancer.

Owen

£25 could pay for a Youth Support Coordinator for one hour, while it costs £30 to fund a nurse specialist for an hour.

Whether you can donate £2.50 or £25, your incredible support will mean that we can be there for more young people with cancer like Owen, Molly, Dionne, Shannon and Demi.
