I've supported The Teenage Cancer Trust since I first noticed that Roger Daltrey (an honorary patron along side the Duchess of York), was the driving force behind Teenage Cancer Trust Royal Albert Hall Concerts The first one being in 2000 when The Who were joined on stage by the likes of: Noel Gallagher Bryan Adams Paul Weller Eddie Vedder Nigel Kennedy Kelly Jones Every year since then, Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall has raised essential funds to help the charity. Over seventeen million pounds have been raised in 14 years to support the work of the Charity. The Teenage Cancer Trust This is a wonderful charity that works hard improve the lives of our young people ages 13-24 with cancer to help get them the best care and support that they need, which can be totally different from those of young children or older people that have been diagnosed with cancer. These young people used to be lumped in the childrens ward or alongside old people and this is where the charity saw the need for a change. They realised [...]

Cancer, the dreaded C word - the other one. When it happens to us, of course, it's a huge shock. Why me! Cancer is something that happens to someone else! No one wants to take that journey in life. But once we find out about it there is no going back, we have to tackle it head-on. The only save here is that we did find out, so now we have a chance to Kick Cancer from our lives. It's also difficult for family and friends who feel helpless and who want to help but they don't know how - Cancer, its such a big shock for all. Since an early age, my life has been affected in some way by cancer. From the age of 15, I dealt with it day in and day out from when mum was diagnosed. It came and went and came and went - for 15 years. I remember then, how friends and relatives felt. People wanted to help, to offer some assistance, to say that they are there if they are needed, to [...]
Bone Marrow Transplants are not exactly my usual blog subject - its not really about anything technical or a mobile app or even a social media platform, although I have blogged about cancer before as it is a big part of my life and as a big supporter for the teenage cancer trust I believe social media can help raise awareness and support. This time a friend who is trying to raise awareness and to spread the news about the Fireflies tour and Bone Marrow Transplants and asked me if I can help out. My friend John started this Facebook Page, which if you can *like* to show your support, that would be fantastic - Help Someone be Lucky the page explains why I want to and need to help out. The reason for this FB page is that John is planning to cycle 1000+ Km across the Alps From Lake Geneva to Cannes in aid of #BeatBloodCANCER in the June 9-18 2014 Why is he doing this crazy thing? John is doing this because he had a blood cancer, leukaemia, and had a [...]
I have so much admiration for the work that goes into the Teenage Cancer Trust. They do so much to raise awareness and raise money to help our teens and young adults. This is Who cares about our teens and young adults. So I just wanted to put a little blog together with some of their information on, that maybe you are missing because right now they need our Twitter Power! Six teenagers will find out they have cancer today, six tomorrow and six the day after. More often than not, these young people get a raw deal, receiving hospital treatment in inappropriate facilities alongside young children or older people. Teenage Cancer Trust fights for the rights of teenagers and young adults with cancer. The charity helps make life better for these young people by building specialist units which are boosting survival rates. Via The Who Who cares about our teens and young adults Roger Daltrey from The Who, a personal favourite of mine, is a patron of Teenage Cancer Trust and has been actively involved for some [...]
