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 a year. 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.

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.
