Dry July fundraising this year means PINC & STEEL can continue to help more people affected by cancer through physical rehabilitation

You should feel beyond proud knowing that your Dry July fundraising this year will amplify PINC & STEEL's reach and enable them to guarantee more support to anyone suffering the side effects of cancer treatment.

Through better access to PINC & STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation Physiotherapists, more New Zealanders can restore, rebuild and reclaim a better quality of life. 

Their community programmes like Paddle On and Next Steps are specifically designed to support people in their recovery from a cancer diagnosis, aiming to improve physical, social and emotional health. 

A massive thank you to all of our wonderful Dry Julyers - without you, these community programmes wouldn't be possible. 

Your Dry July fundraising means Look Good Feel Better NZ can continue to help people face cancer with confidence through a range of different programmes

Thanks to the help of Dry July participants and donors this year, Look Good Feel Better NZ can help people face cancer with confidence through diverse services accessible anywhere and at any time. 

From live online confidence classes, podcasts and on-demand videos, to in-person community classes, Look Good Feel Better NZ’s diverse range of programmes provide accessible opportunities to learn tips and tricks to help disguise the visible side effects of cancer, as well as some time out to connect through shared experience. Their programmes welcome people of all ages with any type of cancer, and at any stage of their cancer journey. 

We’re beyond proud to fund these services, helping to make a difficult time, a little easier for people affected by cancer - and we certainly couldn’t do it without our Dry July community. 

Dry Julyers, your fundraising efforts this year will help people like Melany face cancer with confidence

Dry Julyers, you should be incredibly proud of your fundraising efforts - you’re helping Look Good Feel Better NZ to provide their wellness workshops, helping people like Melany face cancer with confidence. 💗

These sessions are free for anyone with any cancer at any stage of treatment, including tips and tricks to disguise the visible side effects of cancer, as well as a chance to spend time with people who understand what you are going through.

52-year-old Melany has metastatic breast cancer and had already attended a class five years earlier. She decided to sign up again late last year when she had to have more treatment.

"I had been through a first lot of chemotherapy, and my hair dropped off, my eyebrows dropped off. You don't want to go out in the world, you don't want anyone to see you like that. I remember thinking, ‘no one can make me look good after going through this’."

Attending the Look Good Feel Better class helped lift her spirits during this difficult time, “And that gave me a whole new confidence to be able to face the world. When I smiled, everyone in the house started smiling. It is like a domino effect.”

“Look Good Feel Better gives you the confidence to face the world. And you leave with the skills to recreate those looks again.”

Prost-FIT is a fun exercise class designed specifically for men living with prostate cancer including those recently diagnosed, those receiving treatment, and survivors living with aftereffects from their cancer treatment.

There are a number of benefits that exercise can bring for prostate cancer patients – including reduced fatigue, lowered risk of osteoporosis, increased strength and aerobic fitness.

Dry July raises funds for Look Good Feel Better NZ's incredible community and online workshops, helping people face cancer with confidence

Last year, 57-year-old mother of two, Bridgit, was given some frightening news amongst Covid-19 and lockdowns – a cancer diagnosis that made her feel more isolated than most in New Zealand.

While the nation stayed at home, she was in hospital having surgery, followed by chemotherapy, and multiple side effects that meant more hospitalisation.

Bridgit soon came across Look Good Feel Better NZ sessions online and thoroughly enjoyed her experience, “It was the first time I've probably really got to talk about my experience and hear other women's experiences"

"It's so life-changing and transformative. And it just makes you feel so good.”

These sessions are free for anyone with any cancer at any stage of treatment, and include tips and tricks to disguise the visible side effects of cancer, while also providing a chance to spend time with people who understand what you are going through.

By participating in Dry July NZ and raising funds, you'll be helping to support Look Good Feel Better NZ's incredible community and online workshops, helping people face cancer with confidence. 💗
