New Charity Single Raising Awareness of Youth Cancer

In a powerful new music video created by STA Travel, and UK-based hip-hop band, ‘Along Came Shifty’, the impact of cancer is highlighted in an effort to ensure no young person faces cancer alone.

‘Forecast’ is a six-minute clip which showcases the strength of young people facing cancer, and promotes a new global fundraising partnership between STA Travel and CanTeen Australia, CanTeen New Zealand, Teenage Cancer Trust UK and Teen Cancer America.

STA Travel CEO John Constable says the single aims to spread the word about CanTeen and help face the specific challenges that come withn having cancer at a young age.

“Normal life is suddenly turned upside down and treatment prevents you from socialising, playing sports and travelling,” he says.

“We want to spread the word about CanTeen, and their important work bringing young people affected by cancer together while also helping them develop skills to cope with the impact cancer has on their lives.”

The video was brought to life by STA Travel Creative Director Tor White, with the help of US filmmaker and cancer survivor Hernan Barangan, who was diagnosed with Leukemia at 15 years old.

“Being a cancer survivor comes with a weight of its own – a duty to give back,” Hernan says.
“I want to disrupt the way we look at cancer to dispel fear and focus on the strength of the young people affected.”

You can download the clip from iTunes or watch it on YouTube here.

All the proceeds from downloads are split between the four charities.
