How you can help young people

£420 could pay for a school session so young people and their families know the signs of cancer and feel confident to seek help if they need it. 

£810 ​could provide wifi or a phoneline in a unit for a year, so young people always feel connected and can keep up with their studies. 

£950 ​could pay for a young person to attend our Find your Sense of Tumour weekend, so they can relax, share advice and hang out with other young people who know just what they're going through. 

£1000 ​could pay for the professional education and development for one of our staff members so they can continue to provide world-leading expert care for young people with cancer. 

£2500 ​could pay for a digital jukebox in a Teenage Cancer Trust unit's social area so young people can relax and listen to music with friends, family and othe ryoung patients.
