How gaming for charity helps

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

Join Aidan and start gaming for charity

I’m Aidan, when I was 15, I was diagnosed with leukaemia. While being treated at a Teenage Cancer Trust ward, the staff arranged for two of my friends to visit me in hospital, so I was able to play FIFA with them. Teenage Cancer Trust were there for me.

Take on a gaming challenge to help young people going through cancer.
