Join Aidan and start gaming for charity

Aidan, a young person with cancer, laying in a Teenage Cancer Trust ward about to start gaming for charity

I’m Aidan, and when I was 15, I was diagnosed with leukaemia. Today, and every day in the UK, seven young people like me will hear the words “you have cancer”. 

Take it from me, facing cancer at such a young age can feel like the loneliest place in the world - but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Join me on 10 October, or whenever works for you, to game for charity and go live to help change the future for young people like me.
