Cancer Society Wellington

One in three New Zealanders will be affected by cancer in their lifetime. The Cancer Society Wellington provides free support services and information for people going through cancer treatment and their friends, family and whānau. The Cancer Society is the largest funder of cancer research after the government. As an independent organisation the Cancer Society receives no direct government funding and is entirely reliant on the generosity of New Zealanders to provide these services. So thank you.
