We have been supporting people with cancer and their whānau since 1929.

We provide a range of free cancer support services to help you and your family cope with your cancer diagnosis and manage during your treatment and beyond. We can help with:

  • information and advice;
  • emotional  and practical support tailored to your individual needs; 
  • transport to your cancer-related appointments;
  • accommodation if you live outside of Christchurch and need a place to stay while you have treatment in Christchurch; and
  • post-treatment support.
