The latest in BCNA’s series of short videos has been completed and focuses on how to communicate with children, parents, friends and other family members after a diagnosis of breast cancer.
In the new video BCNA members speak out about what they found helpful for communicating with loved ones in the days and weeks following their diagnosis.
Congratulations to BCNA member Jodie Amor who has been chosen for the cover of the Windsor White Pages in NSW.

As many of you will know, one of the largest charity fundraising events in Australia, the Mother’s Day Classic (MDC) takes place each Mother’s Day.
This annual event is for participants and volunteers to show their commitment and support for breast cancer research and raises money for our sister organisation, National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
For those of you in Victoria, tune into Channel 7 News Melbourne tonight at 6pm.
