Our mission is to support, develop and empower young people living with cancer ages 13-24 years through a national peer support network, and professional educational and recreational programmes. CanTeen supports patients, siblings and bereaved siblings.

CanTeen was established to ensure that no young person in New Zealand living with cancer should ever have to feel alone.

Living with cancer is traumatic at any time, but even more so for young people already facing challenges of identity, independence, education, relationships, intimacy and employment.
