Our Principal Corporate Sponsor
In December 2015, Southern Cross Health Trust and Sweet Louise were delighted to announce a three year sponsorship agreement. Terry Moore, Southern Cross Health Trust CEO, says “It’s vital that people going through the demands of incurable breast cancer are well supported, not just physically, but emotionally and financially. Sweet Louise provides this, giving their members the opportunity to focus on the important things and live a positive life“.
Because of Southern Cross…Sweet Louise is able to expand
Susie is a new Sweet Louise member who lives on the South Island. It’s not only the vouchers that make a difference for Susie, it’s the contact with other Sweet Louise Members that help her cope. Now that meetings are held in Canterbury, Susie can spend time with people who understand life with cancer. There’s no need to explain.””It’s nice meeting with the younger women through Sweet Louise. We’re at the same life stages and they understand what I’m going through. Having cancer means you have to do what you can with time and energy and the girls understand all of that,” Susie says. “Now it’s just about being there for my kids. Every day for few minutes I spend some time visualising each of my children’s weddings. That’s what I focus on,”.
Thank you for your support Southern Cross!

For the past two years, Agpac have sold pink wrap to farmers around the country. Agpac general manager Chris Dawson says the pink bale initiative was an effort to do something for women in rural communities who are often the unsung heroes behind farming and contracting businesses.
“The pink bales promotion gained a lot of support. Many of those who ordered the pink products have a wife, mother or sister who has had an experience with breast cancer.”
Sweet Louise is so pleased to partner with Farro Fresh.
