Best wishes from BCNA

I'm sure that I'm not alone in finding that Christmas approaches with increasing speed each year.  It sure does provide an opportunity for reflection on the past year and to start thinking about the next.  But first there is Christmas get togethers and family catch ups.

For many it's a really busy and fun time but for others it may be a painful reminder of those who are missing from the Christmas table or experiencing a separation from those close to them.

My husband John and my children, James and Maddy and I are spending Christmas Day with two of my three brothers and their families in Melbourne.  I am looking forward to lots of great food and some laughs.

I hope BCNA members and their families get the chance to have a celebration or two with your loved ones.  In doing so we can reflect on another year of life experience and the ups and downs that come with it.  Hopefully more ups than downs.

Very best wishes to you all for Christmas and a safe happy holiday period.

Maxine and everyone at BCNA.

I want to congratulate all of you at BCNA for your dedication and support this year. It's my 'one year anniversary' of my diagnosis tomorrow and I am sure that I have benefited, together with many many ladies, from being able to connect on this wonderful site and know that I'm not alone.

Well done everyone and Merry Christmas. May next year bring new hope for us all.

Love Janey xxx

Merry Merry Christmas and Happy Happy New Year to my beautiful online BCNA family.

I have been with you girls for 2 years now and my journey continues.  I  have no idea what so ever what I would have done without you all.  I know I was so very lucky I found you.

I thank you all for being there and for making BCNA what it is today.  I wish I could be there to give you all a big fat luving hug as you go in to the "Silly Season". 

I know I am going to make the most of the hugs I get from all my family, friends  and my precious grandees.  I know I am so lucky to have them around me at this time. 

Unfortunately we will be minus the matriach of my husbands family so that will be very hard for us all.  My heart goes out to others who will have luv'd ones  missing from the Christmas table or experiencing a separation from those close to them.  I know they would be wanting you to enjoy this time with a smile on your face and laughter in the air so go out there and enjoy this very joyous time.


Luv always, Mich xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxxoxoxoxo


Merry xmas to BCNA

Love and best wishes to you all.  I feel blessed to be spending xmas with both of my girls, their husbands, their children, my sister and her husband and my nephew.  And of course my dear husband who has been so ill and is trying to get his head around 'not being normal" anymore.  No more sleeping aids for me - when I hit the pillow "lights are out".  Xmas time, now that the pressies are wrapped, food organised, travel completed, is for ENJOYING LOVED ONES.  Represh everyone so we can all welcome in the new year with a BANG.  Thanks for all the joy that you have sent my way in 2013.

Best wishes to all at the BCNA network for their dedication and kindness. I am relatively new to the site and frankly I would be lost without it. It is such a comfort to know you are not alone in this ordeal. To all the administrators, hope you have a wonderful festive season with friends and family,

I too would like to wish everyone at BCNA a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year. Thank you for all your fabulous work you do and thank you for My Journey Kit, the bra especially has been a godsend for me. And this site too, it's an amazing tool that has informed me and supported me through a hell of time. Keep up the good work but first kick back and enjoy the festive season with your precious family and friends. See you all next year god willing, Sandra xoxo

Hi to everyone, it has been quite a while since I was on here last but it has nothing to do with illness. I just wanted to say I hope everyone had a peaceful and Happy Christmas and have a safe New Year and I hope 2014 brings many wonderful blessings.
