Good morning all,
Good morning all,
If you didn't know already - we have been working away in the background bulding a new website and we're on track to launch in mid-March.
As a regular user of the online network, we wanted to let you know there may be some times over the next couple of weeks when you will not be able to login to the online network and participate. During these times, you will be alerted that you are unable to login but the website will not be affected - so you will still be able to browse, find and view content in the online network and throughout the website.
There's a lot of new faces in the online network lately and many of you may not know me. I'm BCNA's Media Manager and work to get media coverage of breast cancer and the services and support BCNA provides.
I'm currently working to promote the fact we have recently sent out our 100,000th My Journey Kit. A few major metropolitan newspapers are interested in doing a story with a woman who recently recieved a kit from us.
We’re excited to announce that BCNA will be hosting a free information forum in Horsham on Wednesday 11 February.
The forum will highlight breast cancer treatment, care and looking after yourself.
The program will feature the latest information and advice from breast cancer and health experts, including treatment and care options, ways to manage the emotional and physical impact of breast cancer and inspiration from Olympian and breast cancer survivor Raelene Boyle.
We're proud to feature real women and their families in all the photos we use - but we are running a little low and need to update our image library.
If you would be happy for us to use images of you on our website, in presentations, or in our information resources and promotional materials please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your full name in the subject line.
The photos may be of you before, during or after treatment, with your partner and families, with your pets or just celebrating life and doing something you enjoy.
For those of you feeling up to getting out and about why not do it in style with our new Active merchandise range, featuring our Pink Lady logo.
It's with mixed feelings that I write my last blog post as BCNA CEO. I’m sad to be leaving but excited to have more time to pursue my other interests.
It has been an absolute pleasure to be the CEO of BCNA for the last three years. I am pleased to be leaving the organisation in great shape with a team of wonderful staff and volunteers. I am very proud of BCNA's achievements over the past three years. We couldn't have done it without you. I now look forward to watching the organisation go from strength to strength.
I can't believe it's the 1st of December already and I'm starting to think about Christmas!
I hope wherever you're going to be and however you're feeling that you all have something nice planned with your family and friends?
If you're planning on putting your tree up this year you might like to know about the new handmade Christmas decorations you can order from BCNA.
We understand reconstruction isn't for every woman, but agree women should be aware of all the options available so they can make an informed decision.
With today being BRA DAY Australia (Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day) plastic surgeon Garry Buckland will be hosting a live Q&A on Facebook this evening at 7:30pm EDST to answer questions about reconstruction.
