Give your support by making a vital gift today!
Every day 71 New Zealanders' lives are turned upside down as they hear the words “you have cancer.” From there begins a rollercoaster of scans, treatment, specialist appointments and emotions.
Together we can be there for them with free, expert practical and emotional support. But we can’t do it without you.
Cancer patients like Jo need your support today. Jo is a young mum who was completely shattered when her doctor told her that she had stage 4 bowel cancer:
“I was in a lot of shock trying to process it all” Jo told us, “I couldn’t stop thinking about my children and thinking I’m going to die. I was so consumed with fear for my kids.”
From being fit, healthy, and outdoorsy to feeling fatigued and needing help to get dressed or being driven, has hugely impacted Jo’s sense of identity and independence.
Thankfully, as a result of donations like yours, Jo receives much-needed support and care from her Cancer Society nurse Marie. Jo told us:
“Marie is amazing. We really connected and we’ve become close. When I’ve been upset, I get help from her.”
Cancer Society provides expert care and support, as well as practical help, accommodation for those living remotely, counselling, and assistance with travel to treatment.
Your incredible gift today will ensure Jo and other cancer patients are given full support and information during one of the most difficult times in their lives.
We rely on the generosity of New Zealanders to make this possible. Thank you for your amazing gift this Daffodil Day!
