This October we all can …
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and BCNA will be using the month to encourage members to live their best possible life under the theme ‘Cancer Says I Can’t, I Say I can’.
‘Sometimes it’s the little things that can help you adapt and cope with a breast cancer diagnosis,’ BCNA CEO Kirsten Pilatti said.
‘It’s all about looking to do one thing more than you did the day before.’
BCNA will create a month-long calendar full of useful and empowering advice to help focus on ways we can all look after our bodies, mind and souls.
‘We will be providing guidance for members to nourish and nurture their mind, body and soul and to share their own ‘ICAN’ moments on social media,’ Kirsten said.
October will also be marked by a renewed focus on allied health – and BCNA will be using the month to turn the spotlight on these services.
Metastatic Awareness Day on 13 October will see the live streaming of the metastatic breast cancer program at the BCNA Together Towards Tomorrow conference and supporting Cancer Australia’s launch of its Best Practice Guidelines from the conference on the day.
We will also be acknowledging Male Breast Cancer Awareness Day on 20 October with some insights from men diagnosed with breast cancer from a male perspective.
