Support our work

The C9 Teenage Cancer Trust Unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge was opened in February 2012. The Oasis Centre is located away from the main unit and is a drop-in facility for young people to access information and support when they're not an inpatient. Some of the activities led by the Youth Support Coordinator are held at the Oasis Centre.

Teenage Cancer Trust fund two expert staff at the unit:

  • Lead Nurse
  • Youth Support Coordinator

They make sure the best possible care is given so that patients are treated as young people first, cancer patients second.

Why we need you

For every young person we can currently support, there's another we can't. We need to raise £20 million by 2020 to reach every young person with cancer. Find out more ›
