Teenage Cancer Trust (RAG’s National Charity 2020-21) – Teenage Cancer Trust works with young people aged 13 to 24 around the UK suffering from all types of cancer. Their specialist wards offer a safe, fun, and relaxing environment where the patients can interact with each other as any normal teenager would. They also offer guidance and emotional support to patients’ friends and families. Teenage Cancer Trust aims to educate every young person in the UK about cancer, cancer prevention, healthy living, and empowering them to take control of their own health. Their goal is to reach every young person suffering from cancer and to make sure that they get the care they deserve. Find out more on their website: Teenage Cancer Trust.
