The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation will provide subsidised funding (valued at $260) for FOUR SESSIONS for the PINC Cancer Rehabilitation programme (formerly Pink Pilates) to eligible people who are undergoing or recently completed treatment for breast cancer.

Preference is given to women who have had breast cancer surgery in the last 2 years, with a household income of less than $50,000 and dependent children under the age of 18 years. Also women who have had physical complications following surgery.
This eligibility criteria is to ensure that funds donated to the Foundation are targeted to those most in need of assistance.
