Teenage Cancer Trust patron Sarah, Duchess of York will officially open the UK's first specialist outpatient facility for young cancer patients later. She'll be joined by lifelong supporters of the charity, her daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York.
Based at University College Hospitals Cancer Centre, the new unit will provide treatment and outpatient consultation for patients aged 13 to 24 from across London and the surrounding areas.
The centre has been exclusively designed to bring young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in an environment designed just for them. Since 1990, the charity has built 25 specialist units across the UK. This will be its first outpatient hub.
