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!

Since our launch in 2012, we have made large strides thanks to your support.
And we are only getting started...
Teen Cancer America partners with hospitals throughout the United States to develop specialized facilities and services for teens and young adults with cancer. We build teen friendly environments, enhancing the hospital experience. We develop standards for age-targeted care, improve collaboration between pediatric and adult specialists and enable dedicated research to improve outcomes and survival for our young people.
