Specialised support for Gen Y
While our support groups have always been open to people of all ages, we know Generation Y blood cancer patients face some unique issues and might feel comfortable sharing those with their peers.
Our next 20/30 Chat will be at Let Minnow Cafe, 57 Park Avenue, Clayfield, Brisbane on June 2 at 11am. To reserve your place, contact us on 07 3055 8233 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We started the 20/30 Chat support program in Brisbane in June 2015 in order to provide a relaxed environment for younger people with blood cancers to meet up, chat and share their experiences with each other.
Acute myeloid leukaemia patient Martin Leicht attended the first 20/30 session, and said “It was so great to talk to people our own age who were living with blood cancer.”
“Some people were newly diagnosed and others were much further down the track like me. I felt like I was able to share some of my experiences and also learn things from other people in a really relaxed, fun atmosphere. We will definitely go again!”
