CanTeen Ireland is a registered charity and the nationwide support group for young people between the ages of 12 and 25 years who have or have had cancer. 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 and to attend fun activity weekends away together as a group. Membership is free to our 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.
