Cancer Network Group Service


8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.


Cancer is different in a young person's world and we get that. CanTeen is there for anyone aged between 13 and 24 who is living with cancer. We aim to provide a relaxed, friendly and fun environment where you can share your thoughts and feelings with other young people whose lives have been affected by cancer.

Our mission is to support, develop and empower young people living with cancer through a national peer support network, and professional educational and recreational programmes. 

CanTeen was established to ensure that no young person in New Zealand living with cancer should ever have to feel alone.
