As Australia's only public hospital dedicated to the treatment of cancer, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre recognises the extra challenges faced by young patients. Our Victorian Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Service provides an experienced, multi-disciplinary team of healthcare professionals to support young people through treatment and beyond. We support the You Can Network. It joins our hospital’s purpose-built space for young people and their families - the You Can Centre - as tailored youth services made possible via the generosity of Sony Foundation.
