Shocking Pink

Cancer Network Group Service


Shocking Pink is on a mission to support young women through their journey with breast cancer, and out the other side.

We can support you through:

Financial Assistance
Because we know how hard it can be when you’re not working, down to one income or working reduced hours during treatment, we have allocated a special fund for emergency financial assistance. Whether you need help with travel costs, groceries, utility bills or those pricey specialised bras… fear not as there is somewhere to turn. Read more or apply here.

Support Groups
Shocking Pink curates a popular Facebook group for young women affected by breast cancer in New Zealand. As at April 2021, we had just under 700 members, and it is growing by the day. The group is private, so only group members can see your posts. Click here to join the group.

We also run in person support groups in Christchurch, Auckland, Timaru, Wellington and Taranaki. Many of the members of the Facebook group organise their own meetups also. Contact us or join the Facebook group for details.
