Linking people through their experiences with cancer

Hononga Mate Puku ki Aotearoa
Te hono tāngata mā ō rātou pānga ki te mate puku

If you or your family are dealing with a cancer diagnosis               

You may find it helpful to talk to someone who has been through a similar experience.

Cancer Connect NZ is a free support service which provides information, and the opportunity to talk to someone who has gone through a similar experience to your own.

It doesn’t matter where you live in New Zealand – all you need is access to a phone.

Cancer Connect NZ puts you in touch with a peer supporter volunteer.

Every Cancer Connect NZ peer supporter:

  • Has had cancer, or cared for someone living with cancer

  • Is trained and carefully selected to meet strict criteria

  • Receives ongoing support

Find out more by calling 0800 CANCER (226 237). The phone lines are open Monday to Friday, from 9am – 5pm. Messages can be left after hours.
