This World Cancer Day, we’re supporting our incredible charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust, to raise awareness for how the global pandemic has impacted young people with cancer.
Lakita, a student from Manchester, was 20 when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma in July 2019. Teenage Cancer Trust have been there for Lakita throughout the coronavirus pandemic as she navigates life after cancer treatment.
Jack was diagnosed with testicular cancer in May 2020, aged 16. He was treated on the Teenage Cancer Trust unit at The Royal Marsden in London.
Stephanie, from Bristol, was 24 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2020, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
Cancer can throw young people's lives into chaos. And it can have a lasting impact on their future, even for those who recover. Teenage Cancer Trust’s frontline nurses, youth support teams, and state-of-the-art hospital units give young people the best possible physical, mental and emotional support, during their cancer treatment - and beyond. In fact, it's the only UK charity dedicated to providing this specialised nursing care and support.In 2020, we raised £250,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust by offering you the opportunity to win a Million Pound House in Cheshire. And that’s not all. This quarter of a million pound donation was just the first installment in our commitment to raise £1,000,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust over the next three years.
