At Teenage Cancer Trust, we understand that young people with cancer require specialist care.
We know how damaging it is to take a young person away from their everyday life, their friends, their environment, their family – and put them in a cancer ward with small children or older people.
Young people have a much better chance in their fight against cancer if they are treated by teenage cancer experts, in an environment tailored to their needs. So we’re working every day to make that happen.

Bonnie Tyler is a Welsh rock singer. Born Gaynor Hopkins, she is recognisable by her highly distinctive, husky voice. Following the Top 10 success of her 1976 song “Lost in France”, Tyler released her first album in 1977 entitled The World Starts Tonight. A further single from the album, “More Than a Lover,” made the UK Top 30, whereas the follow up single, “Heaven,” reached the Top 30 in Germany. In 1977, Tyler was diagnosed with nodules on her vocal cords that were so severe that surgery was mandatory. However, Tyler began speaking again prior to her doctor’s orders, causing her voice to take on a raspy quality. At first this made her believe that her singing career was over, but (to her surprise) her next single made her an international star. “It’s a Heartache” made #3 on the US chart and had become a hit worldwide; it topped the charts in several countries (including France and Australia) and peaked at #2 in Germany and at #4 in the UK. The Natural Force album was also retitled It’s a Heartache for the U.S. market and certified gold there. View website >> Bonnie Tyler
