Support Services: No matter who you are, where you live, or the issues you're facing through cancer, we can help with services that are free, confidential and accessible. These services are available for carers, family and friends as well. Our services aim to help those affected by cancer maintain a positive future outlook and offer support for patients and their families. Living with a cancer diagnosis makes many demands on all members of the family. Support can be provided in your home by Society staff and volunteers who recognise the value of a listening ear and time-out for caregivers and supporters. We do ask that you make the first contact with the Cancer Society, because we respect your privacy. Health professionals, family or friends may also make a referral to the Society on your behalf, with your permission.

Health Promotion: The Otago & Southland Division of the Cancer Society works collaboratively with other community groups to advocate to healthy public policy, promote healthy lifestyle choices and supportive environments. There is good evidence the following help reduce the risk of developing some cancers and chronic diseases and so we encourage:

•Smokefree - people and environments

•SunSmart - people and settings eg schools, workplaces

•Healthy eating

•Physical activity as part of everyday life.

For more detailed information on how you can reduce your risk of developing cancer please contact Diana Power at Mob Ph 0278225 825 or the Cancer Society website www.cancernz.org.nz
