    • The Breast Cancer Foundation National Register, which tracks breast cancer rates, treatments and outcomes providing insights for medical research.
    • Bio-impedence machine for Gisborne Hospital to assist in the early detection of lymphoedema.
    • Free individual or family counselling sessions for anyone who has ever been diagnosed with breast cancer.

    • Regular web-based seminars for breast cancer patients who can attend via computer, tablet or phone from anywhere in the Tairawhiti DHB area. 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.
