Newcastle Knights players joined a group of young people affected by cancer at CanTeen's Autumn Program in Point Wolstoncroft yesterday for a footy skills session. The visit was made possible by our partnership with CanTeen and nib's corporate partnership with the Knights.
Players Beau Scott and Chad Redman led the session on day two of the program organised to connect young people affected by cancer with peers who understand their experiences. The camp is a chance to make new friends, develop skills to cope with the experience of cancer and to have some much needed fun.
The Autumn Program is CanTeen's biggest Hunter event, hosting 60 young people from the Hunter and Northern NSW regions over five days.
CanTeen offers a number of services to support young people affected by cancer including a counselling service supported by nib foundation, as well as peer support programs and an online support platform.
