Don't let young Aussies face cancer alone
Every day, three young Aussies are told they have cancer and their worlds are turned upside down. A monthly gift to Canteen will ensure young people can access the right support when cancer crashes into their lives.
Latest news from Canteen
2021 provided its fair share of challenges, but there were also plenty of highs to celebrate along the way.
COVID-19 has seen many of us miss out on spending time with our loved ones. Maybe the pandemic has meant not seeing our parents for three months, three years or – in the worst situations – ever again. And as a result, a lot of us are experiencing grief.
In the eight and a half years I’ve worked at Canteen, I’ve been continuously amazed at the incredible generosity our community shows us each and every day.
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.
