Brave the Shave - Everyday hero Fundraiser

Welcome to Level 2! We're relieved to announce that our offices will be reopening on Monday 18 May. Until then, we are continuing our services remotely.

As we transition more fully into Alert Level 2, we are mindful that cancer patients are still vulnerable because of a weakened immune system.

To help keep you safe, we invite you to phone ahead if you want to visit our office in the next few weeks. Perhaps your query can be answered on the phone?

Please phone our office (03) 539 1137 or contact Cyndy Smith, our Support Coordinator 027 258 0075/cyndy@cancernelson.org.nz

You can also phone Our Cancer Information Nurses 0800 CANCER (226 237) for further information and support.

For anyone coming into the office we will have a check-in area set up in the foyer with hygiene and contact tracing processes in place.

Only one person/couple will be able to enter at a time.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Cancer patients and their families deserve access to the best possible support available. The Nelson and Tasman Cancer Society is your first point of contact for cancer services.

The Nelson and Tasman Centre focuses primarily on enhancing patient and family support systems; improving community well-being through health promotion (e.g. SmokefreeSunSmart); providing information and resources for the local medical community and the general public; and networking to improve communication links with other related organisations.

New Zealand Cancer Society

We have several major fundraising events during the year. All proceeds stay within the Nelson/Tasman region.
