MARCH OF THE MODS- In Aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
March of the Mods is currently raising money and awareness for Teenage Cancer Trust, and these are some of the reasons why:
• Every day in the UK, six young people aged 13 to 24 are told they
have cancer. That’s about 2,100 young people a year.
• Cancer is the number one cause of non-accidental death in young
adults in the UK.
• One in 312 males and one in 361 females will get cancer before
they are 20.
• Young people get some of the most aggressive cancers. But because
only 0.6% of all cancers occur in young people, they are often
misdiagnosed initially. This decreases their chances of survival
and can mean they are excluded from clinical trials.
