Breast cancer support groups provide an opportunity to talk, listen and learn with people who understand the challenges that metastatic breast cancer brings. Support groups can meet at locations and times that suit their members, including online.
While there are very few support groups specifically for people with metastatic breast cancer in Australia, there are some in most states that you may be able to connect with and attend either in person or by phone. There are also online support group communities that may meet your needs.
Visit My Journey, BCNA’s online tool for information tailored to your diagnosis. My Journey has a Symptom Tracking tool that you can use to help you record your pain, what works for you and what doesn’t.
Join our Online Network if you think that talking to others online and sharing experiences will help.
Contact BCNA’s Helpline on 1800 500 258 between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm AEST Monday to Friday, for information about the services and support that may be available for you and your family.
