Help provide support and connection for women like Metua

Each year, our team of specialist frontline Support Coordinators run over 220 support meetings across New Zealand. These meetings are full of advice and encouragement, as well as warmth, love and kindness for women like Metua facing an incurable breast cancer diagnosis.

A donation today will help to provide vital peer-to-peer support meetings so women like Metua can talk and share. So they are not alone.

You can see what your help means to women like Metua who are facing a diagnosis of incurable breast cancer. Metua told us:

“The Sweet Louise support meetings are welcoming and full of laughter. I find the meetings are healing and have inspired me to talk and share. Hearing the stories of the other ladies means I can now stand up boldly and share my story.

“I come from a culture where you don’t really talk about things. At first, I didn’t have the courage to speak out. Now I can ask questions and ask the doctors to explain things clearly to me. I speak up and remind them that English is my second language.”

A donation today will mean that Meuta can enjoy a coffee supported by women who truly understand what she is going through.

Your support now will mean our frontline team can plan for a full schedule of meetings around the country for the year ahead.

“Sweet Louise has inspired me to not let the cancer control my life. I want to live my life to the full,” says Metua.

Thank you for bringing hope and inspiration to Metua and hundreds of New Zealanders living with incurable breast cancer.
