Our services are available to anyone diagnosed with cancer and their family/whānau.

If you, or someone you know, has cancer or has had cancer return, there are so many questions to be answered and so many emotions to deal with.

Our support groups mean people can get together to share their individual experiences and gain support from others.

We also offer workshops and programmes to help people manage the emotional and physical impacts of cancer and its treatment.
