NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Who’s Roger Daltrey and country trio The Band Perry have announced a new partnership with Vanderbilt hospitals through Daltrey’s charity Teen Cancer America.

Daltrey revealed plans Monday night to help create a teen cancer wing at one of Vanderbilt’s hospitals. The wing will include specialized facilities and programs to cater to teens and young adults. It has not been decided if the wing will be at Vanderbilt University Medical Center or Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital.

The Band Perry was also named spokespeople for the organization.

Vanderbilt is the 11th hospital to join Teen Cancer America, which is working with dozens of hospitals to create specialized facilities and programs for teens and young adults.

An opening date for the wing hasn’t been determined.
