Partners get together

ShaneShane Member Posts: 4

Hi all,

I wanted to let you know that BCNA will be hosting a male partner information and brainstorming session on 30th November in their Melbourne offices and would like to extend an invitation to 'For the boys' online support group.

As most of us are interstate it may not be possible to attend, but for those who can it would be great to get together with other male partners.

The session has space for up to 20 male partners. Find further session information below.

If you are unable to attend we still want to hear your thoughts. Please comment on this blog as to how you think BCNA can improve the support for male partners like us out there! With your permission we will then share your ideas/thoughts with BCNA to assist with the development of future resources designed specifically for partners.

~ Cheers, Shane.

Invitation - How can BCNA help male partners? 

Are you keen to join other men to learn more about the current thinking on breast cancer, from an expert?

After helping women with breast cancer for over 10 years, BCNA is very keen to find ways to also support male partners.  We'd love your ideas and feedback on ways we might be able to provide information and support.
