    Thanks @Giovanna_BCNA, hopefully I can get there this year, it would be great to see what they're up to. I had the pleasure of working there from 1994-2000 and their breast cancer lab was really just kicking off then.

    By sheer luck I'll be in Sydney that day so I think I'll go.

    I am registered! It's three hours, 2pm - 5pm in Darlinghurst.

    If anyone else from Sydney is going give me a heads up and we can meet! @Eastmum, @Kiwi Angel? Is anyone from BCNA going @Giovanna_BCNA?

    Hi @Glemmis! I hope to see you there. I've had the BMX & recon last year. If it goes reasonably smoothly you should be able to make it on the 21st March. You'll be plum tuckered out though! Don't book anything the day before or the day after.

    Best of luck for Tuesday. Looking forward to meeting you! K xox
