The support team at Ovarian Cancer Australia are delighted to be taking over the sTEAL STRONG Brisbane cancer support group for women with ovarian cancer. This group was established two years ago by Associate Professor Jim Coward.
We are fortunate to have Bronwyn Jennings as the group facilitator. Bronwyn is the Gynae Oncology Clinical Nurse Consultant at the Mater Hospital Brisbane. She has worked in cancer care for almost 15 years and enjoys the combination of rapidly evolving clinical care with the ability to form long standing relationships with her patients and family members. The Steal Strong Brisbane Support group will continue to be held at the Brisbane library on the second Wednesday of each month from 10:00am-12:00pm, commencing Wednesday 12th May 2021.
The Brisbane support group builds on our current support group program which includes monthly groups in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth as well as a Younger Women’s support group, a Tele-support group and our new Male partner’s sessions which are held online.
Anyone interested in joining these groups are advised to call our Helpline on 1300 660 334 (during business hours). Our Helpline is available for women and their partners, family and friends on 1300 660 334 (weekdays 9am - 5pm AEST) and is a source of support, onward referral, information and connection. The support team can also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
