Open Door is a community-based TV series where groups or individuals make a documentary about an issue that concerns them. This episode is about CanTeen, the organisation that supports young people living with cancer — both those battling the disease, and their siblings. CanTeen members head to a winter camp at Mt Ruapehu, go on a fishing trip, and have celebrity visits from hip hop stars Smashproof and TV fisherman Geoff Thomas, plus All Black Ali Williams and coach Graham Henry.
Canteen believes that when young people can meet, talk and share their experiences with others in the same situation, they’re better able to cope with the uncertainties of living with cancer.– From the documentary's narration
