PINC & STEEL
PINC & STEEL was founded on the basis of developing a world-class program for cancer survivorship, which is committed to supporting people affected by any type of cancer through all stages of their treatment and recovery. Naturalwear supports Pinc and Steel via cross promoting its activities and events to all our customers, and providing giveaways and vouchers for a range of events that Pinc and Steel conduct through-out the year.
The PINC and STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation Programs have been founded and developed by Lou James, Physiotherapist, and Physician and Conjoint Professor of the University of Sydney, Rod MacLeod. To learn more about the range of our rehabilitation programs, then please visit our website.
