Media opportunity: Did you choose not to have radiotherapy due to travel/distance?
I am looking for women in regional or rural NSW and Victoria who opted NOT to have radiotherapy to avoid spending long amounts of time away from home and their family.
I have been appoached by Daily Telegraph newspaper in NSW who is working on a campaign around rural health. They would like to focus on poor access to radiotherapy in rural and remote areas.
The journalist I am working with is keen to speak to women in NSW or Victoria who opted to undergo a mastectomy (or double mastectomy) to avoid radiotherapy and having to spend weeks away from home.
Ideally they would like to speak to someone this week. If this sounds like you and your comfortable sharing your story, please email [email protected]
Alternatively if you know of someone who meets the criteria, please encourage them to get in touch.
It's an important issue and one that we are keen to help raise awareness of.
