Talking Heads - Andrea Lim

Andrea Lim, our faciltator of the Talking Heads support group program has recently announced her resignation from the program.

On behalf of the Blackwood 8 committee and the Talking Heads members who have participated in the support group during Andrea's tenure over the last 4 years, we thank her for her valued contribution in helping to support familes & individuals affected by brain cancer.

We wish her well in her new endeavours.

“It’s helpful to say things out loud in a group”
“Being able to verbalise my feelings without judgement, realising that they’re not so unique”
“Learning strategies to cope with my situation”
“Finding out new information and resources that will be helpful”
