Shocking Pink curates a popular Facebook group for young women affected by breast cancer in New Zealand. As at June 2014 we had just under 200 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, and many of the members of the Facebook group organise their own meetups. Contact us or join the Facebook group for details. Other breast cancer organisations also run young women specific groups. As we find out about these, we will add them to this page.
If you aren’t on Facebook, we can put you in touch with the support group in your area, just contact us.
