No one should have to ask that sort of question so early on in life. Teenage Cancer Trust are determined to be there for every young person facing the toughest of times.

“I don't think people realise, I certainly didn't, just how much of an impact their donation can have. But I’ve seen the difference that supporters like you make to young people like Sophie by making the work of Teenage Cancer Trust units and the staff that work on them possible – and it’s just incredible.

“Teenage Cancer Trust understands how hard it is to be a young person with cancer, they provide specialised nursing care and support and they are the only UK charity who meet this need. That’s why we definitely need them to continue their vital work. So please send a gift today and help make sure that young people don’t face cancer alone.” Sarah, Sophie’s mum.

For young people with cancer, this year’s been even more scary and isolating than most. So sticking together has never been more important in getting them through it.

The pandemic and the lockdown have shown us just how strong community spirit is across the UK and reminded us all of how amazing our frontline health and key workers are. Supporters like you are part of our amazing Teenage Cancer Trust community, and together we are unstoppable.

A gift from you will help give young people with cancer the care they need and deserve: from our specialist nurses, dedicated youth support teams, and virtual networks of other young people who know exactly what they’re going through.

“On average, 7 young people are diagnosed with cancer every day. That means between now and Christmas around 350 teenagers and young people will hear the words, “You have cancer.” They will need an unstoppable community to get them through their treatment. That’s why your support is more vital than ever.” Louise Soanes, Director of Services, Teenage Cancer Trust

We urgently need your help to make sure young people like Sophie don’t face cancer alone, this Christmas or in the future.
