Teens not alone in Truce program
Gabby Beaumont, 17, says the Truce program has helped her deal with her dad Phil's cancer diagnosis.
Facing cancer is a daunting
prospect for people of all ages.
For young people dealing with a
parent s diagnosis, talking to
someone can make the world of
Gabby Beaumont is one of five
Canberrans aged between 14 and 22
to take part in Truce -- the first
dedicated group support program
run in the ACT by CanTeen. The
busy St Clare s College student said
along with making great friends
through the seven-week program, it
had been a great way to manage
stress as her final year of school
"It s great to speak to people with
the same experiences because they
are hard to find," she said. "I have
had so much on at school so it s
great to set aside a few hours each
week just to have a conversation
about the things that are going on
Gabby, 17, said the initiative
enabled her to make sense of the
situation after her father Phil was
diagnosed with multiple myeloma
in November last year.
Phil said it had been a tough time
for his whole family, after learning
he had incurable blood cancer.
"We are a pretty active family
and that s a big thing we have all
missed," he said. "My response to
treatment and results are really
good so I am really hopeful to be
able to resume normal life and
gradually get involved again."
CanTeen general manager of
research, associate professor
Pandora Patterson, said 21,000
young people faced the news their
parents had cancer each year.
"Our research has shown that
they often feel sad, angry, guilty
and alone," she said. "Young people
dealing with a parent s cancer are
six times more likely to face mental
health issues like anxiety or
depression than their peers."
CanTeen said if the first ACT
Truce program was successful it
would run another group in early
February. Families interested in
taking part should call
