Dry July

The online programme is made up of weekly, monthly and bi-monthly classes, focussing on core themes – skin, hair, body and mind. You can join from wherever you are and will be shown tools and tips to help people feel stronger and face cancer with confidence. The virtual sessions usually have six to ten people. You are welcome to ask questions and the sessions also provide a way to connect with others going through a similar experience. Held via a link to a live Zoom session, you may have your camera off if you prefer. You are welcome to attend as many classes as you wish – during and after treatment.

Online class topics

Our classes cover a variety of different topics. You are welcome to join us as needed before, during and after your treatment, so that you can feel stronger and face cancer with confidence. You can sign up and join as many online video classes as you like. We regularly add new classes, and new class times, so please check back for the latest schedule.

I didn't realise how much it was going to hit me. I didn’t like looking in the mirror, I had no eyebrows and hair like a baby chimpanzee. I did the online class to see if I could go out in public. You get a sense of community doing it online. It was really nice having other women who understood what I was going through.

We are aware connectivity may be affected in certain areas, but Zoom meetings can be run across New Zealand. To improve the internet connection, we recommend being close to your wifi router, use an internet cable if you have one, and ensure you other members of your household are not over using the internet at the same time (e.g. streaming videos).

It is nice for the facilitator and participants to see each other, to build a connection. However we understand you may prefer not to be seen and this is fine.
