BCNA will be hosting an online Information Forum for people living with breast cancer and their supporters - Living well with breast cancer online Information Forum (bcna.org.au)

The Information Forum will cover a range of topics including the latest in breast cancer treatment, managing your emotional wellbeing after a breast cancer diagnosis, and how you can live well during treatment and beyond. 

It will also be an opportunity to hear about what BCNA does and the services and resources we have available to support you. 

Please note that this forum will explore the insights and perspectives of people affected by breast cancer living in Wagga Wagga, with some of the content tailored to the local support available in and around this particular area. 

Guest speakers will include Medical Oncologist Dr Belinda Keily, Wagga Wagga Breast Care Nurses Sue Munroe and Monica Jessop, Director Supportive Care Services at Cancer Council Tasmania Sarah De Jonge,  Exercise Physiologist Samantha Jones, and Physiotherapist and Lymphoedema Therapist Stuart McKenzie.
