Teenage Cancer Trust

About us

Teenage Cancer Trust is a charity dedicated to improving the lives of teenagers and young adults with cancer.

Every day in the UK, six young people will have to face a cancer diagnosis. At Teenage Cancer Trust, we understand that teenage cancer requires specialist care. We know how damaging it is to take a young person away from their nomral life - their friends, their environment, their stuff - and put them in a cancer ward with small children or older people.

In fact, we know 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. By volunteering with us you will be helping us to make that happen.
