Blackwood 8 Support Services

(Program Currently under review)

In August 2012 Blackwood 8 started an education and support group called “Talking Heads”. This support group was operating external to the hospital environment.

Blackwood 8's Talking Heads support group program is currently on hold, due to the recent resignation of our facilitator (Andrea Lim) who managed this program on Blackwood 8's behalf. We thank Andrea for her 4 years of valuable service.

In the interim, Blackwood 8 would encourage brain cancer sufferers and their families/friends to contact the Olivia Newton John Cancer & Wellness Centre regarding their existing brain cancer support group services, which typically meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

For further information regarding their program, contact Di or Cheree on 03 94963315 or via email btso@austin.org.au
