Formation:

The Brisbane group started in February 1997 with its first public meeting at Wavell RSL with about 70 turning up. From there, the group continued with a core of about a dozen men and their partners, meeting in Peter Dornan’s physiotherapy rooms once a month for about two years. As the group’s numbers grew, the group enlisted the support of The Cancer Council Queensland to enable it to manage the logistics of large numbers for meetings.

Contact is maintained with past and current members through a monthly news-sheet distributed with the Queensland Chapter newsletter. We offer a broad range of support for newly diagnosed men and their families, as well as those who sustain an interest in learning about developments in diagnosis and treatment protocols.

Activities:

Meeting dates for the year are confirmed annually (usually the second Wednesday of each month), with meetings being held in the morning on the odd months, and in the evening on even months.

Group meetings are now held monthly within the TCCQ facilities at 553 Gregory Terrace, Fortitude Valley.
