Join our online network
Connect with others
If you have been affected by breast cancer, you are invited to join our online network. The online network gives you a way to link with individuals or groups with similar interests, stay in touch at any time to support each other, and share experiences.
Other ways to connect
If the online network is not for you, you can connect with BCNA by subscribing to our free quarterly magazine, The Beacon.
We also run free forums around Australia for women diagnosed with breast cancer and their support people. Check the forums information page for upcoming forum locations.
What's a blog?
As a member of our online network you can keep a blog or 'online diary' to share your thoughts and experiences.
You can choose to make your blog public or only to share it with the people you are connected to in the network.
A blog can be a great way to keep family and friends up to date with your progress during treatment and can help with managing your time.
Groups can also use a blog to keep a dialogue going among their members.
