Australians with a disability who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and their carers will now be able to access information resources to help them live well after their diagnosis. BCNA has developed two new fact sheets, Keep breast cancer away and Life after breast cancer, which are available in Easy English written form, audio, and HTML for screen readers.

A new video, Living with a disability and breast cancer, has also been released. It features people sharing their stories of dealing with breast cancer treatment while living with a disability.

Resources for carers of people with a disability who have breast cancer – the video Caring for someone with a disability: the impact of breast cancer and the fact sheets Understanding breast cancer: information for carers of a person with a disability and You’re important too: looking after yourself as a carer – are also available on BCNA’s new Facing Breast Cancer with a Disability webpage.

These resources are in addition to existing resources Sleepless nights, Feeling sad or worried, Lymphoedema, and Bone health and breast cancer, which are all available on BCNA’s Accessible Resources page in Easy English, audio and HTML formats.
