Open the door to change.
It's hard sometimes being a teen. It's harder still when you're a teen diagnosed with cancer: too old for the children's hospital, too young for adult treatment facilities. That's why First Citizens Bank is proud to support Teen Cancer America in creating spaces where teens fighting cancer can feel like they belong. Because they do. And you can help us. Donate online or bring your spare change into one of our branches and help us open the door to better cancer care and brighter futures.Donate
Where a teen can be a teen
Hear their Stories
Founded by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who, Teen Cancer America partners with hospitals to build teen-friendly environments that foster community and social interaction among patients. With soft furnishings, hangout areas, game rooms, laptops, musical instruments and more - it's all about letting teens feel like teens.Explore the teen cancer units
You see, every day more than 30 young adults are diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately, teenagers are a marginalized age group, having no place dedicated to their specific needs in a hospital. So we're supporting hospitals that pledge to work with Teen Cancer America to build dedicated Teen Cancer spaces. These teens can finally feel like teens again, despite facing the biggest challenge of their lives. With your help, we'll open the door to better cancer care.
