The Hawke’s Bay Cancer Society is celebrating a milestone, with the launch tomorrow of a Cancer Wellness Centre building project.
The centre will be a first for New Zealand and The Cancer Society hopes it will become a model which will be adopted by other regions.
More than 1000 people are diagnosed with cancer in Hawke’s Bay each year, and many are unsupported during and after medical treatment.
The wellness centre will be about more than just treating cancer, it will provide care and treatment for the patient, in both body, mind and spirit.
