I will be taking part by cycling a tandem bicycle with Sally, our operations director. It is going to be a fantastic achievement for all that take part and we are really pushing the fundraising to support our charity partner”
Steph Grayson, Teenage Cancer Trust Regional Fundraiser for the East Midlands, said: “We’re really excited to be working alongside Utility Bidder. Their fundraising efforts and enthusiasm have made this partnership such a huge success. Currently, for every young person we support, there’s another we can’t reach. Utility Bidder’s support will help us towards our goal of reaching every young person affected by cancer in the UK by 2020.”
Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the seven young people aged 13 to 24 diagnosed with cancer every day. The charity funds and builds specialist units in NHS hospitals and provides dedicated staff, bringing young people together so they can be treated by teenage cancer experts in the best place for them.
Traditionally treated alongside children or elderly patients at the end of their lives, young people can feel extremely isolated, some never meeting another young person with cancer. Being treated alongside others their own age can make a huge difference to their whole experience. Teenage Cancer Trust wants every young person with cancer to have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live.
Teenage Cancer Trust also educates young people and health professionals about cancer to help improve the speed and quality of diagnosis. Cancer in young people is rare but Teenage Cancer Trust wants young people to know the common signs so they can seek medical advice if they are worried.
