The Two Month Crash

Hi ladies

Has anyone else come crashing down two months after a mastectomy ?

I thought I was doing well and have only had three melt-downs since diagnosis.

My temporary boob and bra made me feel on top of things - until now.  The last few days have made me feel like I no longer belong in this world.

Join us at our next dinner!

Hi ladies,

Our 'Melbournites' Get Togethers have become a really nice tradition over the past 18 months.

Our get together are usually held at moderately priced city restaurant from 6pm.

We share a few experiences, give support where it's needed and also have lots of laughs.

Our next gathering is at 6pm, Wednesday November 26, on the balcony at Feddish Restaurant overlooking the Yarra in Federation Square.

If you're a Melbourne lady or are visiting the city at that time, we'd love you to join us.

On Sunday 7 December 2014, thousands of women of all ages and fitness levels will unite in St Kilda’s Catani Gardens (Victoria) for the 2014 Sussan Women’s Fun Run.

The event is Australia’s largest women’s-only fun run and last year a record-breaking 6,500 participants raised an incredible $250,000 for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).

We hope to make this year’s Sussan Women’s Fun Run the biggest and best event yet! We’re encouraging all participants to go “pink for a purpose” and fundraise for BCNA.

Hello all,

The Medline Pink Glove Dance Awards have come to an end and are thrilled to announce that Sydney Adventist Hospital won the competition and is generously donating their $10,000 prize to BCNA!
