This October, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, host a Sweet October tea party and raise funds to provide vital care and support for New Zealanders with incurable breast cancer.

You could host a simple morning tea, a fancy afternoon tea, or put the ‘tea’ in team and host an event at your workplace. The most important thing is to have fun and know that the funds you raise will provide vital care and support for New Zealanders with incurable breast cancer.

Join us and pour a cup of kindness this Sweet October!

The difference you will make

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and 13 October is Metastatic Breast Cancer Day – a day to raise awareness of incurable, metastatic cancer. Coming together in October to raise funds will mean we can be there for every person facing incurable breast cancer.

The money you raise through your Sweet October event will provide the practical kindness that Kiwis and their families urgently need, including:

  • Specialised, personal, one-to-one care from a local Support Coordinator

  • Face-to-face and online support groups, providing vital peer support

  • Support with ready-made meals and home help

  • Vouchers for self-care services such as oncology massages and other well-being treatments

  • Emergency vouchers for food and transport costs for hospital visits

  • Our Family Time programme that gives families the chance to spend quality time together and create precious memories that will be cherished
