Sony Foundation started You Can in 2010 to fund and build much-needed youth cancer centres around Australia for 15-25 year olds battling cancer.

Huge milestones have been achieved with two You Can Centres open in Melbourne and Perth and two more set to open in Sydney and Brisbane in 2019

The Sixers players will wear with pride, special jerseys honouring young cancer patients and survivors, with three powerful words of meaning emblazoned on their back (listed below).

13 young people with cancer have shared the three words that have helped them get through the toughest challenge of their life.

 

A number of fundraising activities will take place, prior, during and after the match on Wednesday 22 January.
