Mark Knopfler is a patron of Teenage Cancer Trust.
A final, very special thanks to the late, great Jeff Beck.
Cancer is different when you are younger: it can be harder to get a diagnosis, cancer treatments can be less effective for young people, and accessing clinical trials can be harder.
This project is raising funds for two charities that are dedicated to supporting this specific age group.
Teenage Cancer Trust funds specialist nurses and youth workers to be there for a young person when cancer has turned their world upside down and to help make sure cancer doesn’t rob young people of the best years of their life.
Teen Cancer America partners with hospitals throughout the United States to develop specialized facilities and services for teens and young adults with cancer.
