Charity Overview

Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words "you have cancer".

Cancer can throw their lives into chaos. Even for those who recover, it can have a lasting impact on their futures.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to providing this specialised nursing care and support. Without Teenage Cancer Trust, they might not get the clear communication, sense of control and individual support they need throughout a potentially life-threatening illness.
