Teen Cancer America (TCA) was founded by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who. After over a decade working with Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK, the duo decided to bring their passion across the pond and make a difference in the lives of teens and young adults with cancer in the United States. TCA’s mission is to improve the quality of life and outcomes for teens and young adults with cancer, support those affected by their cancer, and facilitate access to the best possible age appropriate care and support. TCA’s first program in the U.S. is right here in Los Angeles – the Daltrey-Townshend Teen And Young Adult Cancer Center at Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA.
