Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer.
Our vision is a future where young people’s lives don’t stop because they have cancer. We make sure they’re treated as young people first, cancer patients second and everything we do aims to improve their quality of life and chances of survival.
Around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word ‘cancer.’ We’re the only charity dedicated to making this happen.
• We bring young people together so they can be treated together, by teenage cancer experts, in the best place for them.
• We educate young people about cancer and work with health professionals to develop their knowledge so we can improve the speed and quality of diagnosis.
• And by funding research and working with our partners in the NHS, government and organisations both nationally and internationally, we strive to improve survival rates.
