We were founded by a group of dedicated health professionals in May 1990 and have since grown from strength to strength.
Our aims are to support, empower and develop young people who have, or have had cancer. CanTeen Ireland provides an opportunity for young people who have been affected with cancer to meet up in a relaxed and informal setting. Membership is free and we only ask our members to make a small contribution towards the cost of weekends away.
Currently we are proud to say that we have 260+ members. It is a testament to the success of the group that many of our members are now volunteer leaders, including our current Chairperson. We are the only support group in Ireland specifically for young people with cancer.
