    Had trouble viewing it on my iPhone. Is the Beacon not being mailed out anymore? I have some elderly ladies in my support group who don’t have computers or smart phones.

    Hello @TonyaM - No, they are no longer mailing this out.  if you contact Mez she will mail out a copy during the week.  She prints one for me to send around to interested ladies - I just get them to pass one copy around the group (do the 'office' thing, I write each name on it and they pass it along).  Mez may send out your required number of copies, though.

    Hi all,
    I am the same,although I have computer it is not the same,I used to love making a cuppa and sitting down to read the Beacon, I guess this is a sign of the times, although I dont like it very much.

    Hi @Mez_BCNA,
    Thankyou so very much, I received my copy of the Beacon on Friday, I made a cuppa and then went and sat in my sunshine filled lounge and spent the next half hour or so reading the articles, was very pleased to read the stories on metastatic cancer,as I have just reached the 9 year milestone myself, since my own metastatic diagnosis, everything in the Beacon was so relevant and informative,
    so once again, thankyou for taking the time to send this.
