Nigel Revell

 Nigel  Revell
Nigel Revell joined Teenage Cancer Trust in 1995 as their third employee and originally committed to helping the charity for a year in response to what happened to a fourteen year old young man he was coaching at rugby, who developed cancer. It was the first hand experience of this young man’s journey that motivated him to become involved with Teenage Cancer Trust.

After initially being involved in most things the charity were doing, Nigel then recognised the need for education about the whole subject of cancer in teenagers and young adults. Primarily, this education was to be aimed at the school and college population, to empower them to be aware of their own bodies and to challenge the medical profession if they felt they were not being taken seriously. However, this role has subsequently evolved into being responsible for all education and advocacy matters undertaken by the charity.
