A partner or loved one who is diagnosed with breast cancer can have an impact on relationships and the family unit. This group offers male partners and supporters a chance to share experiences and learn coping strategies. New participants welcome.
This month we welcome guest – Dr David Speakman, Breast Surgeon and Chief Medical Officer at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. David will be available for an informal chat and provide you with an opportunity to answer any questions you may have.
