Hi. I am 43 years old from Melbourne- 12 years in Australia. I don't have any family in Australia. Only husband and our 9 years old daughter and I have only a few friends . I was diagnosed with breast cancer on 25 th October, went for the operation one month later. From 6 th January I will start my radiation 25 sessions.. I would like to reach to some support group, North of Melbourne, or City.

    Hello @Renata1976
    Stay tuned !  Someone who is more tech savvy than you will soon appear with a link for you !
    Perhaps if you give an idea of your suburb ladies there will know of the nearest support group.
    Perhaps even mention your background as you may find a specific support group with members who really understand your feeling of isolation in a new country.
    All the best   <3

    Hi ! There is quite a good group run out of Think Pink on St Kilda Rd..close to the city. I think you will find it comforting to sit with others who have been through a similar diagnosis. I enjoy going to support groups
