Take a look at our frequently asked questions.

How you can help young people

 

£30 could pay for an hour of care from a Teenage Cancer Trust nurse, who will understand the challenges of dealing with cancer as a young person and specialise in the best treatment for the cancers that affect this age group.

 

£50 could buy a round of pizzas for a young person and their friends, which might just be the first thing that tempts a young person out of bed after a gruelling round of chemo.

 

£100 could pay for 5 hours of time from one of our Multi-Disciplinary Team Co-ordinators, so they can build links with NHS staff, find our about every young cancer patient and arrange the right support.

 

£200 could pay for one of our  Youth Support Co-ordinators  to give a group of young people a night out at the cinema or bowling – a world away from treatments and appointments.

 

£500 could pay for a young person to make a film to express their feelings and help family and friends understand what they’re going through.
