Who are Teenage Cancer Trust?

Teenage Cancer Trust funds specialist nurses, youth support teams and hospital units within the NHS to provide the very best care and support during treatment and beyond, making sure cancer doesn't stop young people living their lives.

Why should I support Teenage Cancer Trust?

Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words “you have cancer”. They will each need specialised nursing care and support to get them through it. Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need.

How does the virtual gifts shop work?

Browse the shop for items, select the one you like and add to basket. With every gift you are making a donation to Teenage Cancer Trust. We'll then use your donation to help make sure every young person with cancer gets the best care and support.

What do I get in return?

When you purchase your gift, you receive a personalised digital e-card over email. We can send it directly to your chosen friend or family member, or simply enjoy it yourself. It's a great alternative when you're stuck for ideas on what to buy for Christmas!

Where does my money go?
