Latest news from Canteen
When we think about youth cancer, the focus is often on the number of young people diagnosed (around 1,000 a year) and their medical treatment. It is incredibly important that young cancer patients get specialist, age-appropriate care.
I’ve been a Board Director at Canteen for six years. In that time I’ve provided oversight and governance for an organisation that has a rich tradition of listening to and empowering its young voices. I am honored to be one of them.
2021 provided its fair share of challenges, but there were also plenty of highs to celebrate along the way.
Health & education professionals
Canteen can help you support your patients or students by providing additional, specialist support.
Research & evaluation
Canteen conducts internationally recognised research into the emotional and social impacts of cancer.
Canteen supports 12-25 year-olds dealing with their own diagnosis, a close family member’s cancer or the death of a loved one. Our services also now extend to parents, because when they cope better with cancer and communicate openly, their children are likely to experience less distress and anxiety.
