More than 12,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia each year. For every woman diagnosed there will almost certainly be a man in her life – a husband, partner, son, father, brother, or friend – who will also be affected.
When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, she faces a challenging journey that can turn her life upside down. For the man who loves her, this can be a frightening new frontier, and a difficult and isolating experience.
National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre* developed two audio CD resources and podcasts, When the woman you love has early breast cancer, and When the woman you love has secondary breast cancer to support men through the emotional and practical challenges of being there for a loved one facing breast cancer.
The audio resources feature personal stories, insight and wisdom from women diagnosed with breast cancer and the men who supported them. They also feature advice and practical tips on navigating the breast cancer journey from leading Australian clinical and psychosocial experts.
