Teen cancer program gets some rocking supporters
Rockers Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of the Who spent the 1960s and ’70s getting rich and famous by making music that appealed to that unmistakable blend of angst, pain and alienation felt only by teenagers and those who remember those years.
Now, Daltrey and Townshend (who you probably already know are the singer and guitarist of the Who) are reaching out to an even more isolated demographic: teens with cancer. And they’re doing it with more than songs, concerts and black T-shirts.
Earlier this fall, Who singer Roger Daltrey visited some young cancer patients at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, which will house the new program for teenagers.
