Rock legend Roger Daltrey and up-and-coming singer-songwriter Harry Hudson, a survivor of lymphoma, have become friends and partners in their advocacy for Teen Cancer America. Daltrey co-founded TCA along with bandmate Pete Townshend in 2012 to help adolescents and young adults battling the disease.
This short clip (1:45) is a preview of the 15-minute conversation between Daltrey and Hudson that will be available later this month.
June is National Cancer Survivors Month, and Sunday June 7 is Cancer Survivors Day. This is perfect timing to help Daltrey, Hudson and TCA shine a light on the tremendous challenges that teen cancer patients are facing under pandemic conditions.Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer patients live every day with the realities of extended social isolation and the elevated risks of compromised immune systems. The coronavirus pandemic is compounding their already stressful circumstances. Non-profits such as TCA, which benefits from proceeds generated by live events, are also facing fundraising challenges during the shutdown.
Please use the hashtags #ayacancer, #ayacsm, #cancersurvivorsday and #teencanceramerica. Your help in elevating awareness this weekend is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
