We're thrilled to announce that Canteen Australia is now on TikTok! This marks a significant milestone for us as we continue our mission to support young people when cancer turns their world upside down. 

Launching Canteen Australia on TikTok isn't just about being on another social platform. It's about building a vibrant community, raising awareness, and making sure every young person impacted by cancer knows they're not alone.

TikTok isn't just a platform; it's a community where voices are heard, stories are shared, and connections are made. That's why we're thrilled to introduce our launch campaign, #CancerAndMe, designed to bring together young people, friends, families, and partners impacted by cancer.

#CancerAndMe is a movement that showcases resilience, strength, and growth in the face of cancer challenges. By sharing your stories on TikTok, you're not only inspiring others but also creating a supportive community where everyone feels understood and empowered.

Canteen Youth Ambassador Franki shares that cancer taught her to slow down and smell the roses. Before her Dad passed away, he always prioritised spending quality time together, having a no-technology family barbeque every Sunday and playing sport together. Since her Dad’s passing, Franki now makes sure she spends lots of time with friends, gets to know the world around her and continues playing sport each weekend.

  2. Whether it's finding joy in small moments, discovering hidden talents, or forming lifelong friendships, your story matters.
  3. Use text overlays to highlight key messages and spread positivity in your video.
  4. Don't forget to tag us and use #CancerAndMe so we can amplify your story and strengthen our community.

Together, let's turn awareness into action, build a community of support, and show the world the resilience and power of those impacted by cancer. Join us on TikTok, share your story, and let's help young people find life in the face of cancer.
