A great way to meet with others who have been affected by breast cancer
A great way to meet with others who have been affected by breast cancer

Held in rural, regional and metropolitan locations around Australia, our Community Information Forums are free events for women and men diagnosed with breast cancer, and their partners, family and supporters.

Learn about the latest in breast cancer treatment and care, and ways to manage the emotional and physical impact of breast cancer from breast cancer experts including medical oncologists, oncology psychologists and other health professionals at these inspiring events.

We provide lunch, information displays from a number of organisation and groups supporting people with breast cancer, and time to meet with others who have been through a similar situation.

Regional and rural forums held throughout 2012-2013 support women, men and their families, thanks to the support of the Australian Government’s 'Supporting Women in Rural Areas Diagnosed with Breast Cancer' Program.

"I found the forum to be very informative and an enjoyable day. I know that I speak on behalf of all from rural areas when I say it was lively and a rare treat for us to be included." -- Nichole, Tamworth forum attendee
