    In MidCentral your donations help fund:

    • A research grant to medical oncologists Richard Isaacs and Navin Wewala from Palmerston North Hopsital for the PantoCIN trial. The trial tests the availability of a cheap, widely available drug to prevent delayed nausea and vomiting from chemotherapy.
    • Te Rēhita Mate Ūtaetae, the Breast Cancer Foundation National Register, which tracks breast cancer rates, treatments and outcomes, providing insights for medical research.
    • Bio-impedence machines for Palmerston North Hospital to assist in the early detection of lymphoedema.
    • A breast tomosynthesis machine - a type of 3D mammography - in Palmerston North to help improve early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer.
    • Thriving, a support service that’s an alternative to outpatient clinic follow-up for low-risk early breast cancer patients.
    • Following a call with our BCFNZ nurses, individual counselling sessions may be granted for individuals diagnosed with breast cancer.
    • Cancer Rehab - Our BCFNZ nurses are here to provide you with information, encouragement and a boost to confidence when you need it before, during or after treatment. They also work closely with specialist health professionals including Pinc and Steel physios across New Zealand, so can advise you about specialist support in your local community.
    • Regular web-based seminars for breast cancer patients who can attend via computer, tablet or phone from anywhere in the MidCentral district. They can question members of the panel during the webinar, giving them access to expert advice they otherwise might not get.
    • An online community, mybc, that links patients and their families no matter where they are in New Zealand, and offers support, advice and encouragement.
