About Teen Cancer America: Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who are the driving force behind Teen Cancer America. After over a decade working with Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK, the duo decided to bring their passion across the pond and make a difference in the lives of teens and young adults with cancer in the United States. Inspired by Roger and Pete’s passion to bring teen cancer awareness to America and improve the lives of young adults with cancer, the founding members of the Teen Cancer America organization were formed. Teen Cancer America partners with hospitals to create youth-oriented centers for those receiving treatment. These units provide peer support and interaction while receiving treatment at in-patient and out-patient clinics. “The disease should be a mere comma in the lives of teenagers, not a devastating full stop. It’s a big ambition, but we can get there by working together.” — Roger Daltrey.
