WANTED! Some of your time

Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne supporters - This is your opportunity to have input into patient information materials to help people diagnosed with brain tumours.


We have some volunteers but still need more to ensure we get a good range of views.


We are looking for people who have been diagnosed with brain tumours and/or family members or friends who support them, to take part in a project to build better brain tumour patient resources.


Please consider attending one of three small discussion group meetings to be held in September – Sydney (1st) , Brisbane (16th) and Melbourne (23rd).


The meetings will help inform a new resource for newly diagnosed persons, as part of our Cancer Australia Supporting people with cancer Grants initiative, funded by the Australian Government.

Can you help us? Yes, maybe, no? Please email Tricia for more information or to register for one of the meetings. secretary@btaa.org.au
