Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and survival chances for young people with cancer aged between 13 and 24. The charity funds and builds specialist units in NHS hospitals and provides dedicated staff, bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts.
Teenage Cancer Trust also educates young people about cancer to help improve the speed and quality of diagnosis. During the summer months, special sun safety sessions are delivered to highlight the dangers of skin cancer and Ryanair will be supporting the charity’s Shunburn campaign.
“Ryanair’s fabulous cabin crew have selected Teenage Cancer Trust as the lucky charity that will receive all of the €100,000 proceeds from the 2014 Ryanair Cabin Crew Charity Calendar sales, which will help support their 27 specialist cancer units for young people across the UK. Every year 10,000 copies of the Ryanair cabin crew charity calendar sell out in record time, so everyone who wants to help Teenage Cancer Trust with its work can buy Ryanair’s 2014 calendar onboard, on our website, or from Teenage Cancer Trust’s website when it goes on sale shortly.”
