Roger Daltrey explained how and why teen cancer patients are hit extremely hard by the disease: [“Teens, they get very rare cancers, generally — some of the rarest cancers. Because of their age and the speed that they’re growing, they get really aggressive cancers. The impact of the disease is worse. Plus the psychological effect; there they are just coming into the age where they’re really gonna enjoy life and they get hit with this whammy.”] SOUNDCUE (:17 OC: . . . with this whammy)
