Hello everyone,

As you know BCNA has been providing free counselling
sessions to our members living with metastatic breast cancer.

Unfortunately we have had to temporarily suspend this
service, therefore free counselling appointments with Dr Carrie Lethborg and
Pauley Kessel are no longer available for the time being.

We hope that this will only be short term and encourage
our members to contact our Helpline on 1800
500 258
if you have any questions or concerns.

If you would like to speak with a counsellor, please call
our Helpline to speak with one of our
experienced cancer nurses who will be able to look at other available options
for you.  Take care everyone.

Kind regards Giovanna

    Hi @Giovanna_BCNA,
    so sorry to hear this, my sessions with Dr.Carrie Lethborg were very helpful and she gave me strategies and tools for dealing with my disease.
    I am sure there are plenty of other ladies who have used this service as well and thank you so much to BCNA for providing this service.
    I do hope at a later stage this will be able to be reactivated.

    Hi @wendy55
    Thank you for your message.  It is sad that this service has had to be temporarily suspended and so great to hear that you found it really helpful Wendy.  We are hoping that this will only be short term as we know how valuable this service has been to so many of our members.  Take care
