This was a rather interesting week. We have reached 700 users. This is really good but at the same time we need to keep in mind how many people we are still not able to reach. As you might be aware, only in NSW, more than 30,000 people are diagnosed with cancer every year. It is only with all of our efforts that we will be able to see our community reaching more people that would benefit from it. If anyone has any idea on how to continue reaching more people feel free to comment on this blog entry or to message me. In the developments area, we have added a box in the right side bar of both the people and the blogs pages that summarises all the recent status updates. If you have not noticed, your status can be updated in your profile page on the right side of your picture. Talking about statistics, our first 5 cities have changed again. The new order is Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth. Is good to see we have reaching Perth. As usual, feel free to contact me or to create a discussion topic if there is anything in particular that you want to discuss.

I'm very new to all of this at 32 I never thought that my husband could be touched by cancer. However after spending quite a bit of time in Radiology waiting rooms in the past few months I noticed a lot of people really just need someone to talk to. Perhaps more posters up in hospital waiting rooms & radiology waiting rooms would help. Also if all doctors had something, perhaps a leaflet to give to people when they are first diagnosed, directing them to cancer connections. The ads on TV with the 13 11 20 were good that's how I started getting some help for both Andrew & I. You guys do an amazing job - so keep up the good work!
