Be brave and make your mark!
Matt was just 16 when he lost his Dad to cancer. It left a huge gap in his life that could only be filled with the right kind of support and understanding.
“With Dad gone, I was more empty than anything. I didn’t feel many emotions until I visited the Canteen counsellor. That’s another big help from Canteen. The counselling space is a healthy space where you can share and have time away from everything. That helped me to let go of my emotions and get some release, without being judged by anyone.”
Colour, cut or shave
Be brave and colour, cut or shave your hair for Canteen. Show the world your commitment to the cause and raise some money at the same time. Just make sure you take plenty of photos!
Shout your commitment from the sky! It could be you're scared of heights or just want to take your challenge to the next level, so why not ask your friends to support you and turn it into a fundraiser?
Step out of your comfort zone and help make a difference. Do something brave, try something different and push your boundaries.
At Canteen, we believe that no young person should have to face cancer alone. We understand that cancer affects everything, but that it also affects everyone differently. Canteen supports young people when cancer turns their world upside down and helps them cope with the physical, emotional and practical impact of living with cancer.
By being brave, you'll be making an impact on the lives of young Aussies facing cancer
