The Pinc and Steel Cancer Rehabilitation Trust helps men and women with any form of cancer through both our individualised and group Pinc and Steel programmes in the South Canterbury region.  There is a huge community need for access to these rehabilitation programmes as there is no public health service or ACC to help rehabilitate after cancer treatment. The Pinc and Steel Trust provides help to those who really need it focusing on improving strength, wellbeing and quality of life.  Medical advances mean more people are surviving their cancer diagnosis and living with long term side effects of cancer and its treatment.    If people don’t get rehabilitated it can affect their ability to work, their families and their physical, emotional and social wellbeing as well as their long-term health.  Extensive research has proven that people who return to an active lifestyle post cancer have a much higher chance of survival.
