Teenage Cancer Trust is a national charity which aims to improve the lives of teenagers and young adults with cancer.
Teenage Cancer Trust believes that young people have a much better chance in their fight against cancer if they are treated by teenage cancer experts, in an environment tailored to their needs.
The charity funds and builds specialist units for young people in NHS hospitals bringing teenagers with cancer together with loads of new friends their own age so they can support each other. Alongside all of this is a medical team of teenage cancer specialists who pool knowledge to create a body of expertise that's second to none. They're backed up by Nurse Consultants who provide clinical care, develop research, deliver professional education and ensure that standards remain as high as possible.
Teenage Cancer Trust units aren't like ordinary cancer wards. Everything about them has been designed to give teenagers the very best chance of a positive outcome.
