BREAST CANCER FOCUSED WEBSITES

New Zealand

Auckland Breast Centre
The Auckland Breast Centre was where my cancer was found. Based in Milford on Auckland’s North Shore, it’s a clinic that specialises in Breast Cancer. They have been so incredible to me and my family. They found the cancer, developed my treatment plan, referred me to the top specialists, and they will also be performing my surgery. Erica Kelly, the best in the business, owns the practice. I owe these people my life. They are so special to me. If you have any worries or concerns get in touch with them and they will take such good care of you.

Breast Cancer Foundation NZ
The Breast Cancer Foundation website is spot on, great references, information and is easy to use and find what you are looking for. It has become my “Boob Bible”.
From Dani Gruzelier

Look Good Feel Better
I have booked in for a Look Good Feel Better class and I am very excited. They offer two hour classes that are designed to help you feel your very best through treatment. You can connect with others and learn all things beauty from proper experts.
From Dani Gruzelier

Cancer Society NZ
The Cancer Society NZ has been an integral part of my treatment. They offer a huge amount of resources and services that I didn’t know existed. I had a nurse call in to see how I was doing and they also have amazing psychology services available which I am very passionate about promoting.

Head High Head Covers
I am a huge fan of these ladies! They came and visited me at chemo and I got to pick out a bunch beautiful head covers. The materials are soft, and don’t itch and they have a style for everyone! They are both very passionate about what they do and were so pleasant to be around. They also sort out the subsidy and claim for you which takes a lot of pressure off.

Pinc and Steel
I have been blown away by the amazing services that Pinc and Steel provides. For me, I want to get stronger before my mastectomy so that I can handle the rehabilitation and get back on my feet as soon as possible. I want to feel strong and sexy again.
It was so easy to book in, apply for the funding and meet with a professional to discuss a programme that is tailored exactly to my needs. I am so excited to start recovering and maintain my physical and mental rehabilitation after Cancer.
