A wonderful break for cancer patients
GROUP of 55 young people received a much needed break from the daily stresses and strains of living with cancer at Mt Buller recently as part of the annual five day CanTeen Winter Program.
CanTeen’s free programs are made possible by donations as well as the support of companies like Buller Ski Lifts.
“Every year another 23,000 young people have to face the challenge of dealing with cancer – whether they’ve been diagnosed themselves or whether it’s their parent, brother or sister,” Victorian division manager at CanTeen Deborah Anderson said.
“A cancer diagnosis threatens the security of a young person’s world, leaving them feeling vulnerable, frightened and confused.
“Attending a CanTeen program gives our members the chance to meet other young people who truly understand what they’re going through while also having some fun.
“That’s why we’re so grateful for every generous donation we receive from Victorians and our corporate supporters - it wouldn’t be possible without them.”
CanTeen were particularly grateful to Buller Ski Lifts, Mansfield-Mt Buller Bus Lines and the Mt Buller Resort Management for their generosity.
