Two members of the British rock band The Who have launched a program for teens and young adults with cancer.
Roger Daltrey and Peter Townshend appeared Friday at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles where they pledged to raise money to renovate part of the hospital pediatric floor into a separate space for patients ages 15 to 25.
Other celebrities including Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin and Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters lent their star power to the effort.
The goal is to create rooms clustered around a common lounge area where young cancer patients can hang out with one another.
Several hospitals across the country including St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia already have dedicated spaces for teen cancer patients.
