The support group was formed in 2009 under the banner of The Cancer Council Hunter Region.
In 2010 we became affiliated with The Prostate Cancer Foundation Of Australia, the main focus of the group is to offer information, support and awareness to the general public about prostate cancer.
Meeting dates and guest speakers are advertised in the local paper and on the community radio. Members receive flyers and reminders by e/mail and phone calls before meetings.
Leaflets, books and DVDs about problems associated with prostate cancer are available to borrow from our library at our meetings. As our group has just recently been formed we have not got into fund raising as yet.
Our meetings are open to all members of the public and we encourage wives or partners of our group to attend our meetings as well.
Dates: Our meetings are on the 4th Thursday of each month.
Times: 3.00pm to 4.30pm.
Venue: Cessnock Supporters Club in the Auditorium.
Free afternoon tea is provided.
