We do this by providing an Australia-wide peer support network for 12-24 year-olds including*:
- Patients - young people who have been diagnosed with cancer,
- Siblings & Offspring - young people who have an immediate family member (brother, sister, parent or primary carer) who has been diagnosed with cancer, and
- Bereaved Siblings & Offspring - young people who had an immediate family member who died from cancer.
We provide Members with a place where they can simply be young people, away from the daily pressures of living with cancer in the hospital or at home.
Through a wide range of camps and programs, CanTeen encourages Members to share their experiences, make great friends...and of course, have fun!
*Young people who don't quite fit these descriptions might still be able to join - call CanTeen for more information or go to www.canteen.org.au
