About Teenage Cancer Trust:

Teenage Cancer Trust makes sure the seven young people aged 13 to 24 diagnosed with cancer every day don’t face it alone. They help young people and their families deal with the many ways cancer affects your body, mind and life. The charity works in partnership with the NHS, providing expert staff and specialist units in Principal Treatment Centres for cancer, and bring young people together so they can support each other.

Teenage Cancer Trust also gives presentations in schools, teaching young people about cancer and empowering them to go the doctors earlier. The charity also helps medical professionals and politicians understand why young people with cancer need specific support.

Almost half of young people with cancer are not treated in Teenage Cancer Trust units. Instead they are treated in hospitals where there isn’t the same level of expertise, and they might never meet another young person with cancer. This is a scary and lonely experience. This must change. So Teenage Cancer Trust is building a wider Nursing & Support Service within the NHS to help all young people, wherever they receive treatment. To make this happen, they need to raise more than £20 million every year.

Teenage Cancer Trust relies on donations to fund our vital work. Find out more, get involved or make a donation atwww.teenagecancertrust.org. Teenage Cancer Trust is a registered charity: 1062559 (England & Wales), SC039757 (Scotland).

Make sure you get your raffle tickets at the show this September 28-29-30th and help us raise money for a brilliant cause.
