Events for Women with BC

Hi Guys & Gals,

I posted this in the Young Women's Discussion Group but I figured it would make sense to post here so that more people can see it, thank you for the approval @Giovanna_BCNA

One of the things that really lacked for me when I was first diagnosed was the lack of information and support provided by my breast care nurse/medical team/GP surrounding information about my BC and also support groups etc so I want to make a conscious effort to post here regarding get-togethers/events/information sessions.

Also, if you know of any "Boob Groups" in your state you think would be really helpful, please feel free to share :) 

If I have missed anything at all, please feel free to add. I will try my best to keep this post updated :)

This is all I can seem to find nationwide at the moment but if there any events I may have missed out please add. So important for all of us to be informed and these events I feel would really help with meeting new people and getting in touch with organisations. Remember, you're not alone!

    Canberra has a Casting for Recovery program - to teach those recovered from BC how to fly fish - and maybe discover a new sport & make new friends

    If you live in Canberra & are physically fit again - why not give it a go!?

    I am currently chatting with a buddy to see if something similar can be arranged for NSW (as you have to reside in Canberra to be eligible!)

    There is a support group in Ipswich qld.  The Pink Divas.  They have regular meetings, are in liason with the lobac Mcgrath nurses and often have information days as well as fundraisers. Although I am not a member I know a few of the ladies that are.  They have a facebook page.

    That's awesome! Thank you @kezmusc for that valuable piece of information. There is also Boob Club in Melbourne who meet regularly http://boobclubmelbourne.com/

    I thought I did mention it but it doesn't seem as though I have @Joannie but thank you for the suggestion. It definitely is although maybe not this time around. I have urgent surgery book next month in below nether regions which is costing me a fair bit of money and then I have my exchange booked for the end of the year so maybe not this year but I will definitely look into it next year (I have never boated in my life :D)

    @Joannie farrrkkk that! lol. I refuse to potentially put myself at risk of falling in the Yarra :D 

    Thank you! Gyno found a polyp in my cervix and told me that due to my "history" it will become cancerous, so getting that removed and hopefully some more endometriosis, haha. It'll be my 5th laparoscopy so nothing new I suppose

    Already have my tickets for the Dirty Down under 4 x 4 pink beach run in October. We've rounded up 6 car loads of people to come.  It's becoming a huge fundraiser.
