Ambassador Sulu Fitzpatrick

We are proud to announce that inspirational Silver Fern and netball star Sulu Fitzpatrick is joining the CanTeen whānau as an ambassador!

Sulu, who has been outspoken about her mental health challenges, wants to use her powerful platform to help us raise awareness and reach more rangatahi impacted by cancer that are in need of support.

We recently caught up with Sulu to find out what made her want to lend her voice to support CanTeen.

What made you want to get involved and support CanTeen?

“Rangatahi are our future, and to see them overcoming such a challenging time in their lives is inspiring. I want to help empower and support them during this time – as they navigate their own stories.”

Do you feel a connection to CanTeen and the rangatahi we support?

“As a mother, my tamariki are my ‘why’. My heart goes out to the rangatahi and their whānau who are faced with these challenges and take it on with courage.”

How do you want to support and make an impact on the lives of the rangatahi we support?

“I would love to give compassion through service to these rangatahi, it is their journey, but I would love to be able to bring some joy to it.”
