The Tom Bowdidge Foundation

The Tom Bowdidge Foundation funds projects that provide support for the day to day care of teenage cancer sufferers and their families. Young people with cancer need expert treatment and support in a teenage friendly environment. We work with shared care hospitals to create facilities where they are allowed to be teenagers first and cancer patients second. We also provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help teenagers and their families cope with a cancer diagnosis.

Founded 2014
