Teenage Cancer Trust  Young people with cancer need specialised nursing care and support. We're the only UK charity to provide this.

If Kev and Bev can run the #greatnorthrun, so can you. 'A few years ago, I didn't think I was capable of running more than 2 miles. Never in a million years did I think I would run a half-marathon. Signing up to run the #GNR for Teenage Cancer Trust with my husband was all the incentive I needed - if a teenager can fight cancer, I can take on the GNR. The support from the team with fundraising ideas and on the day in the supporters' tent was amazing. On the day, nearly the full 13.1 miles was lined with supporters cheering you on and handing out treats, and there was live music spurring you on - the atmosphere was immense! But nothing quite beats the feeling of handing over the money we raised knowing the difference it will make to someone who is suffering.' - Bev. Kev and Bev can do it - so can you.

To round out #volunteersweek, we wanted to introduce you to Khadija and Jennifer! Khadija and Jennifer both volunteered through their firm, Eversheds Sutherland, and joined our #LondonMarathon cheer squads. They both agreed that volunteering with us was an incredible experience, but we'll let Khadija tell you why... 'It has been an absolute pleasure to volunteer for the London Marathon - to work with a charity that really makes a difference in people's lives and engage with the marathon runners has been truly inspiring. So inspiring to the point that I have registered to take part in London Marathon 2019!' You never know where your #volunteer journey might take you! πŸ’™

We couldn't let #volunteersweek go by without sharing a big thank you from our wonderful volunteering team, Clare and Sam! πŸ’™ #volunteers #volunteersrock #volunteering

'It can be really destroying because you feel inadequate when you see all of your friends in their new jobs, they are going to university or they are starting up these really amazing opportunities in life.' - @billy_clayton. Half of young people with cancer in the UK don't receive proper mental support to deal with the impact that cancer can have. We worked with @channel4news on a special feature to raise awareness and start a conversation around this vitally important issue.

'If you are going to transform something, you have to take everyone's needs into account.' - Kate Collins, CEO of Teenage Cancer Trust. Half of all young people with cancer don't receive proper mental health support, yet the Government's proposals for young people's mental health will overlook them. Young people with cancer are the forgotten tribe of mental health support.

'It is really hard because people don't associate teenage cancer with mental health issues because they think you need to focus on the one priority, which is beating the cancer.' - @teamellie_blog.
