me again are there any groups that meet in the Melbourne area?  I am actually Sunbury but Work in south Melbourne  and we are only 30-40 minutes in good traffic.  I think I am going to ask for some counselling as well next visit to royal Melbourne. I think I am at limit now 

thanks in advance

    I wasn't part of a support group but I did go to a very good counsellor, Liz Crocker. I think she is still consulting. Liz Crocker's Living Well Services, High Street Kew.

    The Think Pink Living Centre in St Kilda Rd near the Shrine has support groups along with lots of wonderful activities such as Art therapy, yoga, walking groups, massage, education talks and Days of Indulgence.  I attend a group for the over 40's that meets monthly and there is a group for younger women and those living with advanced disease.  It is a fabulous resource and the breast care nurse Andrea is wonderfully supportive.  Unfortunately for me, my return to work deprived me of enjoying more of the many things on offer.

    Hi there @DearB there’s a great group called young pink sisters in Melbourne it’s run by a lady called Lauren bryant. Can even offer some financial support to reimburse the costs of meds and out of pocket medical bills up to $600. She is just lovely’s give them a call or google them and check them out. Hope this helps. Margie. Xx
