Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the seven young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day. The charity builds specialist units within NHS hospitals that bring young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them.
2015 marks the 15th anniversary of the first Teenage Cancer Trust show at the Royal Albert Hall in 2000. The event has grown from that first special night into an annual week of concerts which have raised over £20million for young people with cancer and is now an established highlight of the British music calendar.
The shows have played a huge role in the growth of the charity, helping to take the total number of specialist Teenage Cancer Trust units across the country to 28 and to fund nearly 50 expert teenage cancer nurses and youth support coordinators.
The Trust relies solely on donations to fund its vital work and you can help transform the lives of young people with cancer. Visit www.teenagecancertrust.org to find out how.
