Telephone forums connect Australians
Support is being provided to patients and families across Australia through the Leukaemia Foundation's Telephone discussion forums.
This support service enables anyone throughout Australia who has or has had a blood cancer or related disorder to share their experiences, provide tips, education and support others in a relaxed forum. Each discussion is facilitated by a member of the Leukaemia Foundation Support Services Team who has a background in haematology nursing.
The call is free for those calling from a landline in country areas or for metro users, the cost of a local call.
The Leukaemia Foundation intends to hold discussion forums for all blood cancers but is currently hosting:
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia
- Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia
- Acute Myeloid Leukaemia
- Myelodysplastic Syndrome
- Young Adults
- Bone Marrow Transplants
To take part, register by calling 1800 620 420 or email email@example.com. You will receive a number and PIN access code and details of the next meeting.
