About us

We offer a range of free, practical assistance and supportive care to help you and those you care about understand cancer, get through treatment and find support.

Our supportive care nurses work in communities across our region to support people throughout Bay of Plenty, Coromandel, King Country, Rotorua, Taupō, Thames, Tūrangi and Waikato.

We also have office locations in Rotorua and Tauranga, and we run the Cancer Society's Lions Lodge for people who need to travel for treatment at Waikato Hospital.
