Our mission is to improve the experience, outcomes and survival of teens and young adults with cancer by providing facilities and programs designed especially for them in hospitals throughout the USA.
Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who are the driving force behind Teen Cancer America, but we've grown! We're reaching out to more young people, but we still need your help. See what we've been up to in our latest video!
Eight Young People are Diagnosed with Cancer Every Hour
Our young people are counting on us. Let’s show them we care.
Most hospitals don’t have special programs or facilities for the age group of 13 - 24-year-olds. We create state-of-the-art ‘youth-focused’ programs and facilities to meet the needs of teens and young adults with cancer.
