My Journey online tool: getting started

We know that a breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming with a lot of information to take in at a stressful time. We also know that many of our members will have moved along in their breast cancer journey and finished active treatment but may still have a lot of questions. It’s hard to know what’s around the corner, but that the My Journey online tool contains information that is relevant to you, no matter where you are in your treatment journey.  Whether it’s coping with the news of a metastatic recurrence, finding out more about DCIS, exploring the pros and cons of long-term hormone blocking therapy or looking for tips on how to make the most of the Medicare system, the My Journey online tool has the information you’re looking for.

Once you’ve signed up for the tool, you can change your treatment status to reflect where you’re currently at in your journey. This will change the topics and information recommended for your situation, including:

  • questions you can ask your specialists or GP
  • advice on resuming exercise post-surgery
  • dealing with the fear of your breast cancer returning
  • managing a return to work or financial concerns.

The tool also contains BCNA’s full library of podcasts, webcasts, videos, booklets and fact sheets.
