young people living with cancer

For National Bandanna Day on Friday 27 October and throughout the month, CanTeen is calling on Australia to #BandTogether to show their support for young Aussies impacted by cancer, whether it’s their own or a close family member’s.

Your support makes a real difference. Whether you buy a bandanna or give a cash donation, you’ll be helping young Australians like 16-year-old Farrah when cancer comes crashing into their life.

Farrah’s childhood was all about family, but when she was 12 her little brother, Omaid, was diagnosed with leukaemia, and her close-knit family was ripped apart.

“We used to spend so much time together, but after Omaid got sick I barely saw anyone. We were best friends, but suddenly I couldn’t be with him or my parents. It was just so hard.” 

Like so many young people whose lives have been devastated by cancer, Farrah felt totally alone.

“As soon as I joined CanTeen, oh my gosh, I just felt as if I was home. When you’re a teenager and problems start happening, you just want to run away. Then I found CanTeen and it was a place where I could just feel safe. I hadn’t felt safe in so long.”

You can help make sure young people like Farrah have someone to turn to when cancer is in their life. Please make a generous donation or buy a bandanna today.
