Sweet Louise is the only charitable organisation in New Zealand dedicated to supporting women and men living with advanced breast cancer (also known as stage 4 or metastatic breast cancer). It supports around 800 women and men a year in New Zealand who have been diagnosed with advanced breast cancer.
Sweet Louise is here to help those living with advanced breast cancer live as well as possible, for as long as possible. Membership to Sweet Louise is free, and once registered, members receive ongoing support to help improve their quality of life.
Sweet Louise is fully aware of the challenges those living with advanced breast cancer face. To help ease the burden of a diagnosis, we provide members with financial, emotional, and social support.
Sweet Louise members receive:
- Some financial assistance each year to spend on practical support including getting home meals delivered, garden and home maintenance, uplifting wellbeing experiences and family outings.
- Emotional support through regular contact with the charity’s Support Coordinators who are out in the community connecting with those who need them.
- Social support and creating connections between members through monthly member meetings, regular social events, and with an online support group.
- Practical workshops, social events and special giveaways.
