Teens can make a difference.
Join Wyatt as he brings awareness to the need for age appropriate oncology care for teens and young adults. He is honored to be working with Teen Cancer America because as a teen he understands that it’s really difficult to find your place. Not yet able to fit into the adult world but not belonging in the kid world anymore. For teens and young adults with cancer it’s even more difficult. Wyatt truly believes in the TCA mission to raise awareness and funds to help hospitals build teen focused facilities because having age targeted care is crucial for their medical treatment and psychosocial development.
Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who are the driving force behind Teen Cancer America. After working with Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK, the duo decided to bring their passion across the pond and make a difference in the lives of teens and young adults with cancer in the US.
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.
The disease should be a mere comma in the lives of young people, not a devastating full stop. It’s a big ambition, but we can get there by working together.
