BCNA has postponed the Perth 'Together Towards Tomorrow' Survivorship Conference until further notice. This decision has been made due to concerns around the potential transmission of COVID-19 (coronavirus). More information regarding this decision can be found here.
We're pleased to announce our next Survivorship Conference will be held in Perth on Saturday 28 March 2020. Join us to learn about the latest in treatment and living well after a breast cancer diagnosis at the BCNA Together Towards Tomorrow Survivorship Conference.
Two sessions will run concurrently, one session for people diagnosed with early breast cancer, and a separate session for people living with metastatic (secondary, advanced, stage 4) breast cancer.
Early breast cancer conference
The early breast cancer session will include topics such as the future of breast cancer treatments, exercise, body image, side effects of breast cancer treatment, making meaningful changes and coming to the end of treatment. There will also be a facilitated discussion focusing on local issues for both regional and metro attendees.
Metastatic breast cancer conference
The metastatic breast cancer session will include topics such as the future of metastatic breast cancer treatments, living well amid uncertainty, exercise, and a facilitated discussion 'you look so well, when does your treatment finish?’
