WE REACHED OUR GOAL!

Every day in Australia, 63 young people have their lives turned upside down when cancer comes crashing into their world.

Thank you for helping us to reach our goal this Giving Day to raise $270,000 in 24 hours, to provide 3,000 FREE counselling sessions for young Australians who's lives have been impacted by cancer.

All donations made from 8:00am (AEDT) on Friday 28 October were matched by our generous partners, Chatime, Hilti, and PMA Global! 

The matched funds have been exhausted, but donations are still welcome!

Thank you
For standing up to cancer with us this Giving Day!

Total raised:
Together, we've raised $316,550 so far to stand up to cancer, thank you!

Sessions provided:
You've helped us to fund 3,517 counselling sessions!

HOW WILL YOUR DONATION HELP?

Young people impacted by cancer are up to six times more likely to face mental health issues like anxiety or depression than their peers.

Which is why we set a goal of raising $270,000 in just 24 hours to provide 3,000 counselling sessions to young Australians impacted by cancer.

Your donation will help provide a young person with access to FREE counselling sessions through Canteen Connect.

Canteen Connect is our online 24/7 mental health service that provides young people with tailored one-to-one support from a specialist counsellor, giving them the tools they need to work through their cancer experience, whether they're dealing with their own diagnosis, a family member's, or the death of a loved one to cancer.

Together, we can stand up to cancer.

Thank you for your support!

YOU'RE HELPING PEOPLE LIKE ELLIOTT...

When Elliott was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma at age 18, it wasn't just his physical health that suffered...

His mental health was impacted too, and he experienced anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts during his treatment.

“I just couldn’t deal with fighting anymore.”

After he went into remission, Elliott battled with chronic lung disease, and was eventually put on life support when both of his lungs collapsed.

“I was in a wheelchair, barely able to walk without passing out, and this had a massive impact on my mental health.” 

When Elliott reached out to us, he was able to access counselling through Canteen Connect, which gave him the support he needed to stand up to cancer!

"Thanks to Canteen, I learnt that it's okay to talk about my thoughts and feelings, and I feel safe knowing that I can always reach out for support."

By donating today, you'll be helping to provide young Australians like Elliott with access to free counselling sessions, giving them the tools they need to stand up to cancer throughout their diagnosis, treatment and recovery. 

A big thank you to our generous partners, Chatime, Hilti, and PMA Global.
