Support groups to close in Auckland
Latest news ....
Breast Cancer Support will close its Auckland city community support groups as of the end of July 2021. While we will no longer offer monthly 'in person' group meetings in Auckland after July, we will still provide our individual services for women newly diagnosed, in treatment, and in recovery. We also support partners and caregivers with these services.
Our services include our 0800 273 222 national help and information line (operates from 830am - 5pm every day of the year), individual support (either by phone, Zoom/Skype/Facebook Messenger/WhatsApp or in person by arrangement), and social 'get togethers' for women within the Auckland city area (these will be advertised on our site and Facebook pages).
Our group on Waiheke Island will continue to meet as usual.
Our Christchurch support group will continue to meet however will take on a more social focus, meeting on a regular Sunday during the month for coffee, lunches, walks, and other social outings.
For further information on any of our services, please call us on 0800 273 222 or email a query.
