'Just keep busy ...'

You've been diagnosed with breast cancer and surgery is a few weeks away. Those few weeks may feel like years. You want something to be done now, you don't want to hang about. Many say this can be the most difficult time: The Waiting. The advice you may hear most often is, 'Just keep busy and the time will pass.' Easy to say ... and you may wonder if those who tell you to 'keep busy' have ever faced a situation like yours. 

Having breast cancer is a transformative experience

It’s the reason Breast Cancer Support Aotearoa exists: to provide the support and reassurance you need to make sense of what’s going on.

​How we can support you

We provide information, emotional support, and practical coping tips from our own experience to help you navigate yours.
