Illness is difficult for everyone but young people with cancer are particularly vulnerable to the emotional and psychological issues their disease can cause.

The feeling of distress and isolation can often escalate whilst hospitalized especially whilst they’re “missing out” with all the fun their friends and families may be having in the real world.

The T15 Play Fund was set up to provide recreational and therapeutic interventions to young international and private patients admitted to the dedicated cancer service at Harley Street at University College Hospital.

Eid is a time of joy and celebration and we like to acknowledge this special occasion for our patients by offering Eid gifts to help raise their spirits and to let them know they’re not alone.

In previous years, young people have received personalized football shirts, jewellery, clothes, days out, chocolate and much more.
