Our Group in Queensland, just had a requested discussion with the Arana Hills Men’s Shed on Friday. Advised the meeting went over very well. Lots of question asked by the attendees.
Thanks to Helen Rayner, George Moros and Doctor Jim for being our front people in Qld.

    I wish there were more men on this site--not that I'm wishing cancer on more men.
    I worry sometimes that the pinkness of BCNA actively discourages male involvement, though I totally understand the value from a branding and marketing perspective. It's too successful to entertain change, I guess the message that needs to go out is that once you're on the breast cancer bus it's all the same struggle regardless of your gender.
    @PeterB advocacy is so important, well done for doing your bit. Mxx

    I have recommended someone I know to join the men’s BC site. He found his BC early but the Drs pushed aside his concerns. By the time they decided to test him, the cancer had metastasised. He does not have any cancer specific support. However, you cannot make people do something.

    I believe that we are not looking for change, but more inclusion. It would be nice to see BCNA supporting MBCF. Not financially, but recommending our group.

    Facebook reported on a guy from country NSW being diagnosed with Mets - I put a reply, recommending him to join BCNA to have support & be able to chat with  you guys here.
