How Your Support Helps

You're making a difference

When CanTeen Leader Abby was younger she was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma in her spine. She has been in remission and cancer free for nearly a decade, but Abby still feels the effects of her treatment and is learning to deal with the feelings cancer experiences can bring.

“To this day I still can’t do a lot of things that I used to, like certain types of sports and dance, as I don’t have as much movement as I used to.

Abby was able to find support in CanTeen - as a place she felt accepted to be herself.

“CanTeen changed my life for the better. Since I joined CanTeen I have never felt like the outsider or the ‘cancer kid’. I have always felt accepted and have actually found myself.”
