Where the money goes....

Teenage Cancer Trust builds specialist units in NHS hospitals across the UK. It receives no government funding, and so relies on voluntary donations from people like you. It costs around £2,000,000 to build and equip a new unit, £50,000 to fund a Nurse Consultant and £2,000 for a patient controlled bed, essential during periods of critical illness. It is estimated that with the current units around the UK, only half of the teenagers diagnosed with cancer now have access to this dedicated, specialist support. So the charity needs to do more. Teenage Cancer Trust's aim is to build enough units so that, by 2012, every single teenager will be treated on one.
