Aerial view of the Auckland Domain to show location of Domain Lodge

 Just opposite the Auckland Hospital parking building is the Cancer Society’s Domain Lodge.

We will be at Covid Level 1 from tomorrow so have confirmed our next support meeting on 28 October from 10.30 to 12.00. The last meeting was a joy so I hope people can attend to share their experiences. We hope to invite at least one member of the hospital staff but you will be free to vent, laugh, cry, complain, and tell your story if you wish. 

A small Facebook poll showed access to dental care and financial concerns were two factors causing people the most stress during the process of their head and neck cancer treatment. 

We hope to be able to help patients and their families with some of these issues when our charity has raised enough money to provide vouchers and hardship grants. To raise awareness of our charity and to fundraise we are going to launch an awareness campaign in November. 

Meanwhile, may the cherry blossoms bloom in the Domain.
