Hi all,

Please see post below on behalf of Vicki Durston, Director of Policy, Advocacy and Member Support at BCNA. 

Today we have been asked to be interviewed on A Current Affair about the cancellations of elective surgery in NSW related to Breast Reconstruction.

We are looking for someone who might like to share their story of how the waitlists could potentially impact those already waiting for Breast Reconstruction in NSW.

If you could help us - we would be so grateful, as this gives BCNA national coverage to send the message that we are here for all those in NSW facing these challenges through the COVID pandemic.

Time is of the essence, so we would need to hear back ASAP. If you could call the Helpline if you are interested on 1800 500 258 and let the team know that you would like to participate, we would be so grateful.

Regards Vicki.

    @Carissa_BCNA I have posted onto Breast cancer and beyond, tnbc  and stage 4 tnbc as they often have contacts who they would share it with also.

    Hi all,

    For the story on A Current Affair, we wanted to ask if there was anyone living in Victoria who may be on a waiting list for breast reconstruction? If you would like to share your story, please reach out on 1800 500 258. Time is critical, so if you could please let us know of your interest as soon as possible. 

    Many thanks
    Carissa (on behalf of the BCNA team)
