Rangatahi don’t have to face cancer alone. Canteen is a safe space where rangatahi impacted by their own diagnosis or cancer in their whānau can connect, share the tough stuff, and get a break from cancer. Our community was created by rangatahi 35 years ago and is still led by rangatahi today. Learn more about Canteen or read our annual reports.
