2021 charity partner – Teenage Cancer Trust
We’re delighted and extremely proud to announce that Teenage Cancer Trust will be our official charity partner for 2021. Our charity partnership is part of our commitment to provide support and funding to as many UK medical charities as we can.
The Teenage Cancer Trust fundraising target for 2021 is to raise £15,000 which is to help to fund the amazing support that they provide. This money will help to provide vital services to cancer patients between the ages of 13 and 24.
Most of us will at least know someone or be close to someone who has suffered from cancer. This dreadful disease causes extreme stress and anxiety to patients, family, and friends… then imagine being diagnosed with cancer as a teenager
About Teenage Cancer Trust
There are seven young individuals between the ages of 13 and 24 who are diagnosed with cancer ‘EVERY DAY’. Every single one of these young adults and teenagers will require care and support from specialist nurses to help them through this incredibly difficult time.
Teenage Cancer Trust is a UK-based charity that is dedicated to helping to meet these needs – ‘so no young person faces cancer alone’.
The charity is just about to celebrate its 25th year of providing some of the most incredible support services to teenagers with cancer. The key is to be able to clearly understand the unique emotional, physical, and practical needs of young cancer patients.
