Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of the legendary British rock band The Who are attending the opening of a new Teen Cancer America in New York on Friday.

The duo will be at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for the launch of a facility called “The Lounge," designed specifically for young adults and teenagers with cancer. According to ABC News Radio, the facility is a “state-of-the-art” rec center where young people with cancer can watch TV, play video games, hang out with friends, use top-of-the-line computers and much more.

Townshend and Daltrey will be speaking to the press and signing a guitar to be displayed on the center’s wall.

“The Lounge” was funded by $1 million in donations given at The Who’s concert at the world famous Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The best part is the young adults and teens with cancer have a place to go where they can just have fun and be young.

Teen Cancer America was co-founded by Daltrey and Townshend in 2012. The foundation funds the building of facilities at hospitals and medical centers in the U.S. where young adult and teen cancer patients can be young adults and teens.
