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
Canteen is bursting with excitement about the news that Chatime has come on board as a Major Bandanna Day Partner.
For most of my professional life I’ve been caring for children, adolescents and young adults. I’ve helped them with their nutrition, overall health and wellbeing, and now, at Canteen, with evaluating and understanding what exceptional cancer care and support looks like.
Canteen has grown its scope of work over the past 36 years and we can be proud of so much, not least the way we have been able to successfully advocate and lobby for better outcomes for young people impacted by cancer.
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.
