Support Alicia and other young people living with cancer now!
Every day 63 young people accross Australia, like Alicia will have their lives impacted by cancer. Canteen's mission is to be there for every single one of these young people but we still have a way to go which is why we need your help.
Alicia was 19 when she was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Then exactly one year later and six months into remission Alicia had the news that the cancer was back.
'Treatment had a massive impact, not only physically but socially and emotionally. Isolation is one of the greatest challenges I faced as I withdrew from my friends and family. Cancer takes over every single part of your life and it becomes difficult to navigate on your own. Canteen has helped me with all this. At Canteen I have a support person who is someone to bounce my ideas and plans off, I have met some incredible people through the online platform Canteen Connect, who I still speak to regularly, and I attend programs when I need a break from everything going on in life."
