BREAST cancer survivors Robyn Sack and Cheryl Beatty were among about 300 survivors that joined forces in Melbourne last week to share information about breast cancer issues as part of a national summit hosted by Breast Cancer Network Australia.

It links more than 60,000 individuals and more than 300 community support groups, including Dragon's Abreast Mt Warning and the Tweed/Byron Breast Cancer Support Group providing a network of support for those affected by breast cancer.

Ms Sack said the summit offered information and inspiration as well as some practical ideas and resources to take back to the Murwillumbah/Tweed Heads community.

"Local breast cancer groups are a great source of support for women dealing with breast cancer and are powered by local survivors who volunteer their own time," she said.

Call Dragons Abreast Mt Warning on 0427 368 819 or 0439 464 868 or Tweed/Brunswick Cancer Support Group on 02 6672 4447.
