Supporting our families/whānau in Nelson Tasman
Cancer Nelson is about supporting people and families/whānau through the journey with cancer. When cancer arrives there is no warning, suddenly it's there and there are so many things to deal with. Financial challenges are just one aspect.
Our Nelson Tasman patients and families/whānau often require help to get to treatments, for groceries if an income has been lost or to get a counselling session to comes to terms with the changes in life that cancer brings. These are just a few things the money you gift will go towards.
We also work to provide patient support and information, accommodation, research and health promotion. We receive no government funding so your donations are a very important of our fundraising to support those in our community facing cancer.
Please note all donations over $5 are tax deductible.
