The spring 2016 edition of Network News is now available online!

Inside you’ll find many supportive articles on topics such as telling your child you have breast cancer, caring for our caregivers, depression and anxiety, and hypnotherapy.

You'll also learn about inflammatory breast cancer from a patient with this rare form of the disease.

We hope that these articles will make your life as a breast cancer patient or survivor a little easier with the knowledge that we at CBCN and the wider breast cancer community fully support you in your cancer journey.
