    Hi @Fizzgigg, I know you have been provided with BCNA's service finder https://www.bcna.org.au/services-and-support-groups/services/31400# by member @iserbrown, where hopefully you can access support and resources in your area. 

    I also wanted to mention that Cancer Council NSW 13 11 20 offer 'Cancer Connect' which is a free and confidential telephone peer support service for people experiencing localised cancer (not advanced cancer). You can chat to a specially trained volunteer who has been through a similar diagnosis and experiences.​ The service is also available for those experiencing survivorship issues. They also may be able to connect you with a local support group.

    Please do not hesitate to call our Member Support Services team on 1800 500 258, as we are always here to listen and support.
