New support service for young people living with cancer

| Share

Young people living with cancer now have 24/7 access to an online chat forum where they can connect with others and find support.

The world-first CanTeen website also provides youth-specific information and seven-day access (including evenings) to CanTeen counsellors. 

 You'll also find a wealth of specific advice relevant to all circumstances, including:

  • I have/had cancer
  • My parent has/had cancer
  • My sibling has/had cancer
  • My friend has cancer
  • I've lost a loved one to cancer

To join, you need to be aged 12-24, living in Australia, and either you or someone in your immediate family has undergone treatment for cancer. Once you join, you get your own homepage that is customised to your situation, as well as access to CanTeen’s online counselling team from 10am-10pm Mon-Fri and 11am-6pm Sat-Sun (AEST).
