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
A lot of the work our research and evaluation team do is based on better understanding what it’s like to be a young person with cancer, including the sometimes elusive idea of friendship and connection. How do we measure that?
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.
