Thank you to CanTeen Australia CEO Peter Orchard and Tasmanian Manager Shae Chester for hosting me at CanTeen’s Hobart office, as well as Madeleine, Sally, Vic, Alex, Sarah and Michelle for talking to me about the important work each of you do.
There are some organisations that just do incredible work in our communities. CanTeen is one of them. For young people aged between 12 and 25 and whose lives have been affected by cancer, CanTeen is an incredible resource. Canteen can provide support not only if a young person has or had cancer, but also if their sibling or parents have or had cancer. It provides opportunities for young people affected by cancer to escape the pressures of their daily lives for a while and make new friends.
