The Wangaratta Peer support Group enjoyed a relaxed lunch at Café the Prevue on Sunday 11th Feb. Our guest speaker was Lia Rigoni a local physio therapist who specializes in breast cancer. We had several new comers. A highlight was celebrating Marlene’s 84th birthday. Our members were thrilled to receive their Reclaim Your Curves gift packs.

On Sunday the Wangaratta Reclaim your curves group enjoyed a close knit chat about the challenges that face rural women when trying to decide on which surgeon to use in Melbourne. We all agreed that finding Reclaim your Curves had been a huge support. Our guest speaker was Louise Kaye-Smith who spoke about an entirely new ready to wear breast form option.

All our members are looking forward to the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Event to be held in Albury on Monday 26 of June 2017.
On a chilly day in February in Northeast Victoria the Wangaratta Reclaim Your Curves Group held their inaugural lunch. Ladies travelled from several regional areas to enjoy a delicious light lunch at Muddy Waters Café
Several of the women are already members of RYC while others were overwhelmed to find such an amazing network of woman all ready to support each other through their experiences with breast cancer. One thing we all had in common are there are no plastic surgeons in our regional areas. Women travel to Melbourne or Sydney generally.
The day started quietly as we all felt our way. Jodie Finlayson one of our amazing Breast Care Nurses gave up her Sunday to join us for an hour and answer general questions.
Our guest speakers at the lunch were and Marg Delaney and Maree Parker who are owners of Donna Bella Lingerie located at 83 Murphy Street Wangaratta. They provided a wealth of information to the ladies about body image, induvial choice and service. Margie has several sisters who have had breast cancer and reconstruction so was very well informed and approached the discussion with a holistic approach.
