Just when life should be full of possibilities, cancer crashes into a young person’s world and shatters everything. Cancer pushes them back in to the nest, makes them grow up too fast and weighs them down with worries they’re not supposed to have yet.
CanTeen is the game changer. They help young people cope with cancer in their family. Through CanTeen, they learn to explore and deal with their feelings about cancer, connect with other young people in the same boat.
By feeling understood and supported, young people develop resilience and can rebuild the foundations that crumbled beneath them when cancer turned their life upside down. That’s how CanTeen is the difference.
Canteen was set up by a group of young cancer patients in 1985 and still have young people affected by cancer guiding the organisation at every level.
BoxSAlicious actively supports CanTeen with their Adelaide based fundraiser events such as Quiz Nights and City to Bay Run.
