Growing up with Cancer

Help for Health want to share with you that next Monday, 26th June on BBC1 at 7.30pm, there will be a one-off documentary which focuses on the Teenage Cancer Trust Unit at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow. The documentary, called ‘Growing up with Cancer’, follows five young people through their treatment and features interviews with hospital staff including the Youth Support Coordinator.

The documentary powerfully tells the stories from the point of view of these amazing young people, demonstrating how incredibly tough it can be but also how resilient, positive and inspirational they are.  It shows the huge difference Teenage Cancer Trust units – and the wonderful staff within them - make to young people with cancer.
