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

And we need YOU to donate on 28 October and help us reach our goal!

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, let's stand up to cancer!

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 wished someone would kill me because I just couldn’t deal with fighting anymore.”

After he was placed 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 on 28 October, 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. 

Support our Giving Day and help young Australians like Elliott stand up to cancer!
