Hello and welcome to the Friday update!  
It’s almost here and we are very excited! As you may know, the online network is getting a makeover. Some of you have been following the updates and asking questions over in the Community Shift group. On Monday, 29 August, the online network will go offline around 9am and it will remain offline all week. On the following Monday, 5 September, you’ll come back here and voila! New online network. If you need anything during this time, please don't hesitate to email us at [email protected] or call us at 1800 500 258.

Community Highlights
We have 24 new members. Please say hello to Rosep, archer21, DebbieT and all our new members. This week we had 41 posts and 381 comments. Here are some you may have missed -

BCNA News & Events
Supporting people with a disability - Join our consultation on the impact of disability on breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. BCNA wants to ensure that it provides accessible and appropriate breast cancer information and support to people with disabilities and their families. We would like to understand what information and support people with a disability who have breast cancer need and we are interested in the breast cancer information and support needs of people who support people with a disability. More information is available about the project in the participant information statements for people with a disability and for family members, carers and support workers.

If you would like to share your experience with us or would like to find out more, please contact Grace Daley via [email protected] or on 1800 500 258.  If you are deaf, or have a hearing or speech impairment, contact Grace through the National Relay Service www.relayservice.gov.au.

Pink Lady Luncheons - The Pink Lady luncheons provide an opportunity to support Australians affected by breast cancer and are held in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) and Secondary Breast Cancer Awareness Day (13 October). Click here for more information.

    I'm so happy the update is finally happening! Honestly, I've come back a few times to check whether anything had improved but have been so sick and anti screen-time that I just haven't had the patience to navigate all the bugs as well as cope with the headache of being on the computer.

    Thank you all for making this effort. I really appreciate all the hard work.

    Inkpetal, you are not alone here. We have listened to what our members have been telling us, it's taken a while but we are nearly there. x
