Will YOU stand up to cancer?

Our mission is to support young people when cancer comes crashing into their world.

Every day, 63 young people have their lives tragically turned upside down by a cancer diagnosis, whether it's their own diagnosis or a family member.

It is a life-altering experience that can significantly impact their mental health.

But YOU can help provide them with access to specialist counselling sessions from Canteen Connect to help them work through their cancer experience.

Our goal is to raise $180,000 to fund 2,000 counselling sessions to help young people impacted by cancer deal with the challenges of cancer.

So, we're asking YOU to join us and Stand up to Cancer on Thursday 28 October and finishing on Friday 29 October.

All donations will be DOUBLED, thanks to our generous sponsor, Chatime!

Together, we can show young people impacted by cancer that they're not alone!

Donate today and DOUBLE your impact!

How your gift will help?

Young people are up to six times more likely to develop serious mental health issues like anxiety and depression when they have been impacted by cancer.

With your support, we can help provide them with free access to specialist counselling sessions from Canteen Connect to help them work through their cancer experience.

Canteen Connect is a 24/7 online support service for young people in need across the country.

Let's Stand up to Cancer and give them the support they need.

You're helping young people like Molly.

Molly was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a form of blood cancer in 2019 when she was just 17 years old. She'd just graduated high school, and was the happiest and healthiest she had ever been.

But, then she was told she had cancer.

Her life was instantly put on hold.

"Over 200 needles, hundreds of litres of chemotherapy, 32 daily tablets, radiation and having no hair wasn't exactly how I pictured my gap year."

"It was terrifying to be diagnosed with cancer, I did not know what this meant for my future or if I even had one to look forward to. You just had to live day by day, minute by minute."

Molly admitted that coming out of treatment and into remission is, of course, exciting but also very overwhelming. 

Which is where Canteen came into Molly's life. Post treatment, Molly was able to connect with other young people who had also been impacted by cancer, attend programs, counselling sessions and leadership camps.

"I have enjoyed these programs and opportunities immensely. They provide me with an escape from my worries, help me think about the big picture and most of all they allow you to know you are not alone and that someone truly gets it."

Our goal is to raise $180,000 to provide 2,000 counselling sessions so young people like Molly can get FREE access to much needed support.

On Behalf of all our Furry crew members walking in bandannas this week to raise awareness and funds for Canteen. The puppies and their owners all participated in purchasing bandannas from canteen or wearing their own style and putting towards a group donation and posing for the camera. Everyone had a wonderful week and we’ve enjoyed making a difference and posing for purpose this week.
