The Banyule "Forget Me Nots" Breast Cancer Support Group meets on the first Monday of the month (except for November, when it meets on the second Monday) from 10am to 12pm at a community venue in West Heidelberg. There is also another group meeting at 7pm on the 3rd Monday of the month. The time of the meeting varies if the group has a social outing or lunch planned. The group welcomes all women affected by breast cancer, including carers. Activities include peer discussion, social activities, education and relaxation sessions. Activities are planned once a year and vary depending on the needs of the group members. There are no fees to attend meetings, however the costs of outings are paid for by individual members. Call 13 11 20 for more information, including the exact address, and to be put in contact with the group leader.
