For people living with secondary breast cancer, access to practical help is essential for maintaining a positive life. Now, support and services for these people and their families has extended their assistance into the South Island.
Fiona Hatton, Chief Executive of Sweet Louise, says the financial support from the Southern Cross Health Trust will allow the charity to provide support services in the South Island as well as access to Sweet Louise nurses.
“The feedback we’ve receive from our North Island members talks of enriched lives at a time when they are dealing with a devastating diagnosis. We’re very pleased we can now offer this to all regardless of location.”
Terry Moore, Southern Cross Health Trust CEO, says “It’s vital that people going through the demands of secondary breast cancer (including the families) 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.”
