Congratulations to our 100th website member, Emma Wilkins of Staffordshire. We are very pleased that our site has gained so much traction after only 10-11 months. Most of our discussion is over on our closed Facebook group, but the website is doing well too, in terms of viewer-and membership.
Welcome also to our 101st member, Mere Manning of Napier. Remember that you are all more than welcome to comment under our blog posts or join our forum.
To Auckland members, a further reminder that this month's meeting is on Thursday 7 September at 9.30 Domain Lodge. I will be bringing along the UK and Australian patient book which was released on WHNCD in Australia and which contains three of our New Zealand stories. David Grayson will record a live reading of part of the book and share it on social media. This is the latest thing, folks. We share visual and video pieces and make contacts around the world in the head and neck cancer community. We are making new friends all the time and with these broader contacts the power of our advocacy increases and the depth of our knowledge.
When we record parts of our meetings live, they can be shared around the country.
Big news. Domain Lodge is getting busier and busier. They are finding it hard to accommodate us for parking purposes. Therefore NEXT YEAR, 2018, we will be moving to the somewhat inconvenient time of 11.30 - 1.30 on the first MONDAY of every month. There will be parking.
Diana, our chairperson is recovering very well from surgery and will be with you for the next Network News.
