Friday update 17th August 2018
Hello everyone and welcome to Fridays update. Wow what an amazing weekend was had last weekend!
2018 Field of Women
Such a great experience to stand on the MCG with over 12,000 others to mark the 20th Anniversary of Breast Cancer Network Australia’s work to support, inform, represent and connect all Australians affected by breast cancer. You can see all the Field of Women photos here and the Field of Women streamed live on Facebook
PLAN B Living Well Beyond Breast Cancer & PLAN C Living Well With Metastatic Breast Cancer
The Plan B & C conferences were held on Saturday, the day before the Field of Women at the Glasshouse in Melbourne. Plan B is available to view via webcast below. You will need to register first to be able to view the webcast.

Plan C Conference
The Plan C conference was held concurrently with Plan B conference. What a great day and great opportunity for all involved in the conference to meet and get to know each other. Riki and I are in the process of collating a summary of some of the major discussions had on the day and will post online as soon as this is available.
Following the formal presentations we had the opportunity to have some facilitated group discussion. The topic for discussion was ‘You look so well, when does your treatment finish?’ This discussion was facilitated by @MoiraC, one of our community members. You can read the great summary provided by @MoiraC below. A big thank you to you Moira, it was great to meet you and your partner last Saturday. We really hope that this discussion will continue in the Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer online group, see thread below
