Our Story

Cancer does not discriminate, so why should we?

Our Collaboration with TCP believes in diversity, equity and inclusion. We are shocked by the fact that very few if not zero, international cancer NGOs for teenagers existed, So we realized, this needed to change. That is why we are part of the solution, to innovate, change and to save.

Why we are part of the solution?

14 million people are diagnosed with cancer, and 1 million die of cancer every year. Millions of people have lost loved ones to cancer or have been a caregiver. We want to help. Murphy Charitable Foundation Uganda and Teens for Cancer Patients are dedicated to attacking cancer. TCP and Murphy Charitable Foundation Uganda are in collaboration to provide personalized academic and emotional support to teenagers, raise awareness of cancer stereotypes, utilize teenage talent to combat a severe illness, and ensure no one hears the words, “You have cancer”.
