Teenage Cancer Trust Type Charity Registration No. 1062559 (England & Wales) SC039757 (Scotland) Founded 1997 Location London, England Origins Cancer care Area served United Kingdom Focus Teenage and young adult cancer patients Mission Improving the lives of teens and young adults with cancer. Revenue £6½M a year Website Teenage Cancer Trust is a charity that focuses on the needs of teenagers and young adults with cancer, leukaemia, Hodgkin’s and related diseases by providing specialist teenage units in NHS hospitals. The units are dedicated areas for teenage patients, who are involved in their concept and creation. Medical facilities on the units are colourful and vibrant environments, equipped with computers, TVs, game consoles – designed to be places where friends and family feel comfortable to visit. To date, the charity has built 16 units in London, Leeds, Liverpool, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, Manchester, Glasgow, Southampton, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Wirral. The charity anticipates that the concentration of medical expertise within these units can improve chances of recovery by 15%. Units cost over £2million each to build and Teenage Cancer Trust aims to complete at least 22 units in the UK by 2012 so that every teenager and young adult with cancer in the UK has access to these facilities. The charity also serves as an advocate for teenage cancer needs, becoming instrumental in the establishment of related research and national and international forums. It also provides support services and education related to teen cancer.

Established in 1997, the charity’s work has expanded dramatically. As well as an Education and Awareness team with a schools programme providing information, education and advice that reaches pupils all over the UK, the charity funds and organises a forum for professionals to ensure information and best practice sharing. It sponsors a teenage conference, Find Your Sense of Tumour, an International Conference on Cancer and the Adolescent and have just appointed the world’s first Professor of Adolescent Cancer Medicine. Each day in the UK, 6 teenagers will find out they have cancer. That is over 2,200 new diagnoses each year.[citation needed] In many cases, cancer in teens is not picked up early enough and symptoms are dismissed as growing pains or sports injuries. Because teenagers are undergoing growth spurts, their cancers grow faster than other age groups and they can be at greater risk. Cancer is the most common cause of non-accidental death in teens and young adults in the UK. By the age of 15 teens have a 1 in 600 chance of developing cancer. By the age of 24 young adults will have had a 1 in 285 chance of developing cancer. In the last 30 years the incidence of cancer in the teenage and young adult group has increased by 50% and for the first time ever, the number of teens with cancer now exceeds the number of children with cancer.[citation needed] Administrative The Teenage Cancer Trust was registered as a charity in the United Kingdom on 29 May 1997, and holds registration number 1062559 (England & Wales) and SC039757 (Scotland).
