Every donation of money or time helps us to support more people with breast cancer and their whānau.
Did you know?
A donation of $25 is equivalent to about five takeaway coffees a month. Could you go without your morning pick-me-up and donate your coffee money to brighten someone else's day?
The value of peer support is now widely recognised as an important part of a person's recovery from breast cancer.
As a Breast Cancer Support volunteer, your time, expertise, and sharing of personal experience can help to make another person's experience a little easier.
"Many of our volunteers join us because they want to give back after recovering from their own breast cancer diagnosis - often they've received support from us themselves."Now they want to help others who are facing this life challenge because they know the value of being able to talk to someone who has been there too."
Jane Bissell, National Service Coordinator
As with most charitable organisations, we are always looking for more volunteers. In addition to volunteering for our breast cancer Buddy Programme, we also have a number of other volunteer roles.
Join our committee, share your knowledge and skills and help Breast Cancer Support to grow. You do not have to have personal experience of breast cancer to help in this way.
Coordinate a local support group and bring people together for connection and friendship. Support group coordinators have personal experience of breast cancer.
Volunteer your time to visit those with breast cancer who would benefit from individual support. Volunteer visitors have personal experience of breast cancer.
As a member, you will receive our quarterly newsletter and notification of events by email. Your membership also enables us to operate as a registered Incorporated Society.
Every member has voting rights at the Annual General Meeting, and, as needed, can have a say in the running of the organisation at a governance level. Members can also serve on our governing committee.
To become a member simply fill out the form opposite.
Please call us on 0800 273 222 or contact us for more information about how to support our work.
Thanks for joining us! We'll be in touch soon
Your donation means we can give even more support to those who need it, at the time when they need it most.
We love to hear from women and men who would like to use their breast cancer experience to support others.
We're always here to support you. Our breast cancer support line is available from 8:30am to 5:00pm, 365 days a year.
