Teenage Cancer Trust believes teenagers shouldn't stop being teenagers because they have cancer. So they fund and build specialist units for young people in NHS hospitals. The units bring teenagers with cancer together with loads of new friends of their own age so they can support each other.
They also provide a medical team of teenage cancer specialists. They are supported by Nurse Consultants who provide clinical care, develop research, deliver professional education and ensure that standards remain as high as possible.
The vision: To ensure 100% of teenage cancer patients have access to specialised support in a Teenage Cancer Trust unit.
Supporting the vision: There are currently 16 Teenage Cancer Trust units across the UK. Argos colleagues and customers will be helping to build a further 18 Teenage Cancer units and help transform the lives of young people with cancer.
