A new unit for teenage cancer patients has been officially
opened in Birmingham. James and Oliver Phelps opened
the £370,000 Teenage Cancer Trust's unit at
Queen Elizabeth Hospital
The unit replaces the charity's former one at the hospital
and is the third such place in Birmingham. It has a kitchen,
quiet room, an education room and also a place where young
people can listen to music, watch television and log on to
There is also more pictures of them, at this event :
Oliver: Being from the area and everything, it’s just a fantastic opportunity to come down and see people who are going through this and it’s not like a normal hospital and that’s the best thing about it. And seeing how positive everything is - so it’s great to be here.
James: Yeah. I think because we’re from the area anyways it’s just a huge honor for to be invited to do this and the whole midlands can benefit from it. And we’ve just seen a handful of great tales of coming through here so long may it continue.
