The Bone Marrow Cancer Trust has a vision to cure and a mission to care. We are committed to providing a home-away-from home at Rānui House for patients and their whānau while they are undergoing lifesaving treatment for cancer, accidents and life-threatening illnesses.
Big Warm House
Rānui House means ‘big warm house’ and that is exactly what we provide.
The Bone Marrow Cancer Trust owns and manages Rānui House and is a charitable trust founded over 30 years ago and funded by donations from the people of New Zealand.
Today we continue to provide 26 purpose-built apartments, which are located within a 2-minute walk to Christchurch Hospital, with construction of an additional 43 apartments due to open in 2024.
Warm apartments, well-equipped kitchens, and spacious comfortable family areas make our facilities feel just like home.
No words can express how grateful we are for the Rānui House team, to know that our family have a place to stay makes a really tricky time in our lives so much easier. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

Rānui House was a haven during a very dark time for our family in 2020. With all our hearts, our family thank everyone who welcomed and supported us at Rānui House.

The knowledgeable and caring staff, meeting other families in similar situations and the general home-away-from home feeling with a range of amenities and equipment available for us; Rānui House is an invaluable resource for families like ours, that have to relocate to be near a Tertiary Hospital.
