Making a difference.

Around 4,200 new rangatahi are impacted by cancer each year, whether it's their own diagnosis or cancer in their whānau. Last year, Canteen supported almost 700 of those rangatahi impacted by cancer in Aotearoa.

Our evidence-based support helps to reduce distress, and 96% of rangatahi would recommend us to their peers.
