Aratika Support


Walking for Wellness Group :

We are currently joining other Rotorua Cancer Support groups and holding weekly walks together, which has been fantastic!

Meet outside Sequoia Cafe on Thursday's at 9:30am for a walk in the Redwood Forest. Stay afterwards for a cuppa and a chat if you have time.


Everyone is welcome to join us, walk at your own pace.  Bring family and friends affected by cancer.



We have a large selection of books that has been donated to the trust.  If you are interested in any of the books, send a book request and our librarian will be able to help you.

If you don't live in Rotorua, most books will fit in a $5 posting bag and you can just deposit that into our account.

Cancer is so limited...

It cannot cripple love

It cannot shatter hope

It cannot corrode faith

It cannot eat away peace

It cannot destroy confidence.


Cancer is so limited...

It cannot shut out memories

It cannot silence courage

It cannot invade the soul

It cannot reduce eternal life

It cannot quench the spirit.
