Writing your story program

Be Uplifted Inc Breast Cancer Charity and Fran Ross bring you the “Writing your story” program.

Aims of the “Writing Your Story” program

This program is intended to:

  • Inspire you to release a story within you
  • Help you decide who you’re writing for (it may be just for yourself)
  • Help you find ways to get your thoughts on paper
  • Help you pull together your ideas in a form that works for you.

Program Leader Fran Ross

Fran has had breast cancer and is part of the Be Uplifted network.

She is retired now, but has decades of experience as a professional writer, editor and manuscript assessor, and a mentor and teacher of writing (in schools, universities and arts organisations). Her work included television (documentary, docudrama and drama), corporate, government and educational media (writing, producing and directing), short stories, biography, multi-media, columns for The Courier Mail and articles for several literary journals. Some of her work won Australian awards, and she had leadership roles in the arts community in Brisbane and nationally.

How Home Care Can Help Your Family

We’ve been part of Queensland life for more than 65 years, beginning with our Blue Nurses™, whose cars have long been a familiar, comforting sight in the streets of every neighbourhood.

These days, most people are aware our cars are delivering much-needed services to older Queenslanders, but may not know what those services entail or how they can now play an important role in helping your loved one remain independent in their own home for as long as possible. That’s where this guide can help, because it explains home care services, how those services are funded and how they can be adjusted to fit every individual’s lifestyle.

BreastScreen Queensland

When was the last time you had your breasts checked? You would perhaps check that you were receiving value for money on your car insurance premium or your home and contents insurance – your breast health is no different. Make sure you keep regular breast checks.

If you move house or change your email address, don’t forget to update your details registered with BreastScreen Queensland so they know where to send appointment reminders.

To make your BreastScreen appointment, to find out more about screening, their service locations and who is eligible, visit the BreastScreen Queensland website
