How Breast Cancer Support Northland Can Help?
Would you like to talk to someone who has had breast cancer?
Breast Cancer Support Northland Volunteer Visitors are all examples of women coping with breast cancer. They all understand the fears and feelings that come with a breast cancer diagnosis, they’ve been through it themselves. They are here to help you successfully navigate the journey by offering practical and emotional support, encouragement, information and a shoulder to cry on.
Our volunteers do not offer medical or treatment advice, and we always recommend that women, in the first instance, seek such information from their medical team, but we can listen and have information on resources available to you.
Breast Cancer Support Northland Volunteer Visitors can give you a call, meet for a coffee or come to an appointment with you, the amount of contact is up to you and your visitor to decide
The meetings provide an opportunity for women with a present or past breast cancer diagnosis to meet in an informal environment for mutual support and encouragement . Even if you have great support from family and friends, keeping in touch with a group of fellow patients add a different perspective and gives you an opportunity to talk openly without feeling like you may upset your loved ones.
These are held every second and fourth Thursday morning of the month 9.30am at Mokoba at the Town Basin. Come for a cuppa and a chat in a casual relaxed atmosphere. Just look for the Pink Flower in the centre of a table.
