AN EXCITING NEW INITIATIVE

NZGCF is passionate about offering a personal, caring and professional support and advocacy service for patients, their families and friends affected by gynaecological cancers.

Evidence has shown that people who join a support group suffer less anxiety, feel less isolated and are better able to cope with cancer and its side effects.  They can help women realise their responses are "normal" and provide strategies for dealing with the challenging times, in turn increasing feelings of control.  Many are surprised by how much strength they gain from being part of a support group.

Therefore in 2016 we will be facilitating support groups, with the intention of providing a positive environment for women to interact with other women in a similar situation.  The groups are open to women at any stage of their cancer journey.

Our intention is that support groups will come in different forms such as in-person meetings, phone meetings and internet forums/chat rooms.  Online support can be particularly helpful if women live in a rural or remote area, or would find it difficult to travel to a group.

It is important that women are part of a support group that they feel comfortable attending and that is most appropriate to their needs.  Therefore, we may be able to facilitate specific support groups for women with different types of gynaecological cancer.  A support group facilitator will coordinate and oversee each group.

If you have been affected by a gynaecological cancer and would like to be part of a support group, please contact the NZGCF Health Promotions Educator via email educator@nzgcf.org.nz or phone 09 869 2051.
