About Can­teen

NZ4WD - - ADVENTURE - www.can­teen.org.nz

Can­teen helps young peo­ple deal­ing with can­cer get back to liv­ing their lives.

That means help­ing with the day-to- day pres­sures, like mak­ing sure our young peo­ple can get to ap­point­ments, or have enough credit on their phones. But it’s also about build­ing a com­mu­nity around them; con­nect­ing them with young peo­ple who have come out the other side, peers who are still cop­ing with can­cer, or trained coun­sel­lors to help un­pick more com­plex emo­tions.

The ul­ti­mate goal is to make sure no young person goes through can­cer alone – whether it’s their own can­cer di­ag­no­sis or a fam­ily mem­ber who’s fight­ing the dis­ease. We’ve seen first-hand that meet­ing, talk­ing and shar­ing ex­pe­ri­ences means young peo­ple are bet­ter able to cope with the un­cer­tain­ties of liv­ing with can­cer.

Al­most there.

Short, tricky puggy mud sec­tion.

Then a fi­nal chance to wash the mud back off.

Time to re-group.
