What is Now What?
Now What is a website for young people dealing with cancer (young people who have cancer, have a sibling, parent or friend with cancer, or whose sibling, parent or friend has died from cancer).
It provides young people with information, support and connection. Information ranges from cancer types and treatment, to coping strategies for dealing with grief and loss.
It also has a community available for young people to discuss issues, and the site contains many stories, so young people can find others in the same situation and understand they are not alone.
Health professionals can also order resources to give young people in their care living with cancer.
Young people have been extensively involved in the development of this site, and it is proudly brought to young people by CanTeen – the Australian Organisation for Young People Living with Cancer.
