Why You Can exists….
Katelyn Mole is a 25 year old who was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in February this year. Prior to her diagnosis, Katelyn was living a normal life, working as a primary school teacher and having just purchased her first home in Tamworth, NSW. She loved her life here until it was rudely interrupted with her unexpected diagnosis. Immediately after her diagnosis, Katelyn had to leave the life she loved so much in Tamworth to receive intensive and at times, very invasive treatment.
In October 2018, Katelyn courageously shared her story with 1,000 guests at Sony Foundation’s fundraiser ‘Wharf4Ward’. Raising funds to build specialised You Can Youth Cancer Centres for AYA patients, this is who Wharf4Ward is for.

We’re the people working behind the scenes to make You Can Connect the best it can be for you. We thought we’d make our own profile to introduce ourselves in case you haven’t heard of You Can. Back in 2010, Sony Foundation Australia launched You Can to address a gap in the medical system to support adolescent and young adults with cancer in Australia. We raise funds and build You Can youth cancer centres across the country to provide a space in hospitals that is just for young people to ensure care and support is tailored towards YOU, not children, and not old people, YOU. Feel free to drop us a line, we’d love to hear from you.
