Larry Busacca/FilmMagicThe Who‘s Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend will be at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City on Friday, March 18, for the opening of a new Teen Cancer America facility called “The Lounge” created specifically for young adults and teenagers. “The Lounge” is a state-of-the-art recreational area where young cancer patients can relax, socialize, watch television, play video games, use computers and more.

A rep for the hospital tells ABC Radio that during the event, Daltrey and Townshend speak with the press and will sign a guitar that will be displayed on a wall in the facility. You can check out pictures of “The Lounge” at

The facility was funded by $1 million donation that The Who raised during a concert at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Teen Cancer America, which was co-founded by Daltrey and Townshend in 2012, supports the creation of specialized facilities geared toward teens and young adults at medical centers and hospitals across the U.S.
