Teenage Cancer Trust 2019 Overview
Since 2000, over 235 artists and comedians have played Teenage Cancer Trust Concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, raising over £27 million for young people with cancer. These incredible shows have played a vital role in helping the charity to provide 28 specialist cancer units and over 60 nursing and support staff in NHS hospitals across the UK, making an incredible difference to young people diagnosed with cancer around the country. But for every young person Teenage Cancer Trust currently supports, there’s another they can’t. Every penny they raise goes towards their goal of reaching every young person with cancer who needs them.
"Every year Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall raises essential funds to support the charity's work. I am incredibly proud of what we have already achieved and am inspired about what we will accomplish together.
Within these memories of unique collaborations and musical firsts are the faces of the incredible young people I have met. Over the years I have met many young people with cancer and like Teenage Cancer Trust, I believe that they shouldn’t have to stop being teenagers just because they have this disease.
They have helped me understand that they are young people first – cancer patients second and I am always struck by their enthusiasm, positivism and their lust for life."
