Help Raise Money for Teens with Cancer


 
On the 3rd of July all profits made from sales of Girl Meets Underworld will go to Teenage Cancer Trust.
 
 
 
I am a big believer in charity work and have raised money for several charities on previous occasions.
It would be amazing if we could raise some money for sick teens who have only just begun to live their lives.
As someone with a family history of cancer and an increased likelihood of getting breast cancer when I'm older, I know just how devastating cancer can be.
 
 
Every day in the U.K. approximately 6 young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer.
Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the chances of survival and the quality of life of these young people.
 
 
Did you know that young people can get some of the most aggressive and rare forms of cancer?
 
 
Teenage Cancer Trust brings young people together so that they can be treated together.
 
 
Working with health professionals to develop their knowledge in order to improve the quality and speed of diagnosis, Teenage Cancer Trust also educates young people about cancer.
 
 
Teenage Cancer Trust funds research and works with both national and international organisations to improve survival rates.
 
 
 
Teenage Cancer Trust aims to provide teenagers and young adults with the following essential services:
  • Rapid access to cancer facilities
  • Clear and accurate information
  • Evidence based treatment with access to clinical trials
  • The best chance of survival with the least possible physical cost
  • High standard age specific facilities
  • Peer support
  • Social, educational and psychological support
  • The best treatment as close to home as possible
