There's never a dull day in the office for me. You never know what you might be up to from filming one of our incredible teens, sending out updates to journalists, chatting to supporters on our social channels or reading the latest research on cancer treatments. My role exists to ensure people know who we are, to enable us to reach out to those young people who need our support and to demonstrate the postive and incredible difference our Teens Days can create for young people fighting cancer. I have two 'nearly' teenagers myself and lots of friends say it must be difficult to hear all the stories at work. I tell them nothing motivates me more and the young people I have the honour of meeting are a constant source of inspiration and positivity.
Detailed below are our events for Teens, Volunteers, Fundraising and Challenges.
Volunteering with Teens Unite has changed my personality and outlook on life. When I hear all the amazing things the teens say about Teens Unite, I can tell they mean every word.
Teens Unite isn't just a charity to me, it was the beginning of restarting my life.
When Elliot started receiving the support of Teens Unite, I could see a change in him straightaway. His outlook on life was becoming positive again and I gained strength from seeing my little boy accepting what had happened and starting to move forward.
I needed help and that's where Teens Unite came in. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and the reason I met Teens Unite was to save my life.
With Teens Unite, I finally realised that I could climb out of this massive hole that I had been digging because I wasn't alone anymore.
If it wasn't for Teens Unite, I wouldn't be where I am now. They have been really supportive and given me the strength to push myself and not give up.
