We are here to support people with cancer and their whānau in the Nelson-Tasman region. We are part of the Wellington Division of the Cancer Society.

Cancer patients and their whānau deserve access to the best possible support available.

We focus on:

  • enhancing patient and family/whānau support systems
  • improving community wellbeing through health promotion 
  • providing information and resources for the local medical community and the general public
  • networking to strengthen links with other related organisations
