Cancer affects thousands of people each year and it doesn’t discriminate; 23,000 young Australians are affected by cancer each year.

The charity CanTeen works with individuals to identify their needs and goals, making sure they get the support they need to deal with their cancer journey.

In collaboration with CanTeen, St Johns College students Isobel Humphreys, Holly Taylor, Hetty Page and Kaylin Davis and staff have successfully organised and run Bandana Day 2017.

By raising awareness and money throughout the college, for the fourth year running, approximately $10,000 has been donated to CanTeen with the endless support of St Johns College students and staff.

CanTeen was the light at the end of the tunnel for Miss Humphreys in April of 2014 when her father was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.

After a short but strong battle, he died in August that year.

You can get involved through purchasing bandanas, donating online at www.canteen.org.au
