Shared Experiences

There are many different Breast Cancer organisations in New Zealand. The largest is the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation which does a lot of work around education and awareness. All the organisations try to work together and there is overlap of funding. For example NZBCF helps fund Sweet Louise (for women with metastatic disease), Pink Pilates and Encore programs (exercise programs for women recovering from surgery and chemotherapy treatment. There is Breast Cancer Support that provides local suppor groups for women with Breast Cancer. I am involved with, and on the committee of, Breast Cancer Aotearoa Coalition who has many member groups, including those mentioned and we take on a more pro-active, advocacy type role. There are also organisations such as the Breast Cancer Research Trust which concentrate on raising money to help fund research.
