Caroline Flack is official Teenage Cancer Trust ambassador
TV presenter, Caroline Flack, has been announced as the latest official ambassador for Teenage Cancer Trust.
Caroline has been involved with Teenage Cancer Trust for a number of years, visiting young people with cancer in the charity’s specialist units, and compering the Florence + the Machine night at the charity’s annual Concerts For Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall this year.
The TV presenter joins Liam and Noel Gallagher, Kasabian, Kevin Bridges, Edith Bowman, Eddie Redmayne, Jameela Jamil and many more who already support the charity.
Caroline said, “It’s an incredible charity and the young people are really inspiring. There never is a good time to get cancer but during your teenage years seems particular cruel. When all your mates are out discovering everything life has to offer, these guys are isolated and alone in hospital with their lives on hold. Teenage Cancer Trust brings them together so they can support each other and makes sure that cancer doesn’t stop them being teenagers. I’m really pleased to do anything I can to support the work of Teenage Cancer Trust.”
Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the six young people aged 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day. The charity builds specialist units within NHS hospitals bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them. Teenage Cancer Trust wants every young person with cancer to have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live.
Traditionally treated alongside children or elderly patients at the end of their lives, young people can feel extremely isolated during treatment, some never meeting another young person with cancer. Being treated alongside others their own age can make a huge difference to their whole experience.
