The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation has partnered with Stratos, a national counselling service, to provide free support for people coping with the emotional challenges which often accompany breast cancer. Counselling can help you talk through concerns, manage stress and find better ways to cope and communicate with family and friends. Often it is helpful to talk things through with someone not connected to your life. This service is free, can be face to face, over the phone or by Skype. Call the NZBCF’s advice line on 0800BCNurse (0800 226 8773) if you’d like to discuss further.
