Hi, I was wondering if there was a support network or group in the Redlands area?

I think it would be beneficial for the patient to get to know other BC patients, as we all have more knowledge than friends or family who fortunately didn't get to walk in our shoes.  I suppose I'm asking if there is a support network in the Redlands area.

Also, it would be nice to meet new people and hopefully become friends.

Cheers Kaz

    Hi @KarenF ;

    Yes you're right, support groups are a great way of meeting people who are or have been through a similar experience and an opportunity to make new friends. You can search for support groups in your area by visiting our local services directory here: https://www.bcna.org.au/services-and-support-groups/. If you type in 'support group' as your keyword search, your postcode and the distance of how far you wish to travel it will display any support groups that are running near you. 

    I hope you'll find a group nearby. Let me know if you have any questions.
