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.
If you need to travel away from home for treatment, we can provide a place to stay.
Cancer patients and their whānau deserve access to the best possible support available.
We focus primarily on:
- enhancing patient and family/whānau support systems
- improving community well-being through health promotion
- providing information and resources for the local medical community and the general public
- networking to improve communication links with other related organisations.
Our services are available to anyone diagnosed with cancer, family/whānau. Please use this form if you would like to use our services or 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.
