World Cancer Day, 4 February, aims to save millions of preventable deaths each year worldwide by bringing cancer to the front of people’s minds. In Australia alone, more than 45,000 Australian’s will lose their life to cancer, and STA Travel and CanTeen Australia want you to show your support!

  2. Challenge your friends and family to do the same
  3. Hashtag #WorldCancerDay
  4. Donate to CanTeen at

STA Travel Chief Executive Officer John Constable, said: “We help millions of travellers explore the world each year. Yet for thousands of young people, their worlds are turned upside by cancer.

“There are specific challenges that come with having cancer when you’re young. On World Cancer Day we want to spread the word about CanTeen and its important work in supporting teenagers who are diagnosed.”

CanTeen gives young people the opportunity to meet and connect with others their age who understand what they’re going through, while also developing skills to cope with the impact cancer has on their lives.

CanTeen CEO Peter Orchard said: “Every year, another 23,000 young Australians have their world turned upside down by cancer. Show them they don’t have to face cancer alone by turning your own world upside down and making a donation.”

Over the next four years, STA Travel will raise money to support young people with cancer by giving travellers the opportunity to donate $2 with their booking.

CanTeen relies on donations to fund it important work. Find out more, get involved or make a donation at:
