Macksville Health Campus is about to conduct its second YWCA Encore-funded exercise program for breast cancer survivors thanks to the program’s highly successful debut in the Nambucca Valley late last year.
McGrath Breast Care Nurse Carolyn Cross said the inaugural program at the Macksville Heated Pool last November attracted 10 women, and resulted in a waiting list for the next Encore program due to start in February.
“The women all agreed it is a much-needed program for many reasons but mostly to help them learn how to live well and meet new friends,” Ms Cross said.
YWCA Encore provides a free gentle exercise program specifically for women who have had a breast cancer diagnosis at any stage of their life and who have completed their treatment.
It’s an inspiring approach to recovery from breast cancer surgery, which aims to meet the exercise and support needs of women after their treatment in a nurturing non-medical environment.
Anyone wanting more information about the program can contact Ms Cross on (02) 6568 0697 or email [email protected].

Update provided 21 April 2022.
As you know, Lismore Skin Clinic in Molesworth Street was destroyed in the recent floods, and we are trying to rebuild the site as soon as we can.
In the meantime we will be moving to St Vincent’s Hospital Specialist Medical Centre – Level 4, Suite 12 – 20 Dalley Street Lismore.
We hope to be up and running in the next two weeks (by early to mid May 2022) and our receptionists will soon begin calling our patients to rebook their appointments and catch up with their needs.
Once we have a firm opening date we will update this notification.
We look forward to seeing you soon in our new premises.
Many thanks for your patience and understanding in these heartbreaking times – stay safe.
Dr Gudmundsen and the Team from Lismore Skin Clinic
