Reducing the impact of Cancer

Southern Cancer Society

Every day 71 New Zealanders are told they have cancer. And every day 23 die from it. The Cancer Society is the leading non-government organisation dedicated to reducing the incidence and impact of cancer and ensuring the best cancer care for everyone.

  • We provide a wide range of practical assistance and supportive care services for people with cancer as well as their family/whanau/friends.
  • We ensure access to accurate and easy-to-understand information about cancer.
  • We are an independent non-government organisation reliant on donations and bequests to provide our services free of charge.

For cancer information and support phone the Cancer Information Helpline on 0800 CANCER (226 237).
