We stopped in North Carolina during the Road Rebellion to meet Julia, story is featured above. Sadly Julia passed away in March 2015. We will continue to share Julia’s story, as she wanted both her voice to be heard and to be a part of the continuing campaign to raise awareness and support for teens and young adults with cancer.




  • The first TCA Unit was successfully launched in 2013 at the UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica, California.


  • Within the next decade, more than fifty hospitals in the United States have been slated to receive the same TCA program, benefiting millions of young cancer patients across the country.


  • Since its inception in 1989, TCA’s sister organization in the U.K., Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT), has successfully raised more than $150 million and built more than 30 teen cancer units throughout the U.K.


  • The units supported by the North Carolina Cares event will provide a hospital venue where teen cancer patients can be medically treated with their peers. These units also include a TCA lounge where teens can escape from the harsh realities of cancer and interact with outside friends and family. Each TCA lounge features computers, pool tables, plasma TV’s, movies and video games for interactive play.
