Cancer Society Support Groups
Our support groups, talks and courses are suspended until further notice.
With the announcement that Auckland is moving into Alert Level 3 and the rest of New Zealand is in Alert Level 2 until Friday 14 August, we are suspending our groups, talks, and courses until further notice. This ensures the well-being of our community, especially those with compromised immune systems. Please ring and check with your local cancer society or the group facilitator for more information.
For any cancer-related queries, you can contact a Cancer Information Nurse on 0800 CANCER (226 237) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please check back soon for updates.
