Increased Support for Young People Living With Cancer
Health Minister Tanya Plibersek today announced the government was providing an
additional $18.3 million over four years for Youth Cancer Networks around Australia -
building on $15 million already provided for the networks.
The funding, provided through CanTeen, consolidates and extends an existing investment in youth cancer made
through the Youth Cancer Networks program and will make a real difference to young people living with the trauma and turmoil of cancer.
You Can Mobile Phone Recycling Campaign
Supporting young people with cancer is now as easy as donating your old mobile phone.
CanTeen has partnered with Sony Foundation to raise $15 million for CanTeen's Youth Cancer Fund.
The Fund will greatly improve the lives of young people with cancer, through age-appropriate centres and services throughout Australia.
