We are here to support people with cancer and their whānau. We are part of the Canterbury-West Coast Division of the Cancer Society.
We provide a range of free cancer support services to help you and your family cope with your cancer diagnosis and manage during your treatment and beyond.
You don't need to be referred by your GP or oncologist to contact us. You can fill in the referral form below or give us a call on 0800 226 237.
We are here for anyone with cancer, at any stage and are available to answer any question.
We can help with:
- information and advice;
- emotional and practical support tailored to your individual needs;
- transport to your cancer-related appointments;
- accommodation if you live outside of Christchurch and need a place to stay while you have treatment in Christchurch; and
- post-treatment support.
Our services are available to anyone diagnosed with cancer, as well as family/whānau.
You can use this form if you would like to use our services yourself or if you are a health professional or family member who would like to refer someone else to our services.
If you or a member of your whānau have received a cancer diagnosis, you can just ring us on 0800 226 237. You don't need to be referred by a health professional.
