CanTeen – National Bandanna Day, 27 October
23 Oct 2006
Is someone you know living with cancer? Many families nowadays would say 'yes' to that question. Many of you would know of older people who have had some kind of cancer. Many of you may have lost someone you love to the disease.
Sadly, cancer doesn't just 'pick on' older people. There are some kinds of cancer which affect kids and young people.
Our topics, What is cancer? and Cancer - when someone you love has cancer will tell you more about it.
You can help kids with cancer by getting involved with CanTeen. This is an organisation which helps young people who are living with cancer.
Every year they sell bandannas to raise money. Maybe your school has sold these bandannas? Maybe your Student Reps have run it at recess or lunch? Maybe you could help this year?
