BCNA IS COMING TO BURNIE!
BCNA is coming to Burnie on Thursday 26 November 2015 to host the free Breast Cancer Treatment, Care and Looking After Yourself information forum.
Designed especially for women, men and families affected by breast cancer from rural and regional areas, the forum will highlight the medical, physical and emotional aspects of living well after a breast cancer diagnosis.
The program will feature the latest information and advice from breast cancer and health experts, inspiration from Olympian and breast cancer survivor Raelene Boyle and opportunities to meet others going through a similar experience.
Christine Nolan, BCNA CEO said it was important that women and families around the country have access to the best possible information and support.
“Breast cancer is a complex disease and there is a huge need for up to date information about research, treatment and living with side effects.”
“Emotional and practical support and general wellbeing are crucial to living well with and beyond breast cancer. Our speakers cover a range of issues faced by women with breast cancer and provide strategies to help them throughout their journey,” Christine said.
Women and men from across Tasmania who have been diagnosed with breast cancer are invited to attend, as well as their family, friends and supporters.
A free bus will run from Launceston to Burnie the morning of the event – to book a seat let the BCNA Team know when you phone to register.
