We hold a
safe, supportive, and healing space
for anyone with breast cancer and their whānau and friends.
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.
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.
From local community group meetings to individual support via phone or video calls, we want you to know you're not alone. We're here to support you when you need it.
Our Buddy Programme matches newly diagnosed women and men from any culture or ethnicity with a trained breast cancer Buddy who gives emotional and practical support for an extended period of time after diagnosis.
