Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words "you have cancer".
Even with family and healthcare professionals around them, young people facing cancer may find themselves isolated, scared and lacking control.
Relationships, exams, careers, life plans – cancer can throw everything into chaos.
And even for those who recover, that huge disruption at such a crucial time can have a lasting impact on their future.
Teenage Cancer Trust's world-leading care and support puts young people in the best possible place, physically, mentally and emotionally, for their cancer treatment and beyond.
Without our expert nurses, support teams, and hospital units, young people might find themselves being treated alongside children or older people.
