Formation

The support group was formed in 1995 and is affiliated with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. The group offers emotional support and information to anyone with an interest in prostate cancer.

 

Activities

Members receive a monthly newsletter via post or email. Copies of other community newsletters, leaflets, books and DVDs on prostate cancer and associated problems are available to borrow at meetings or by contacting the above.

We man information stalls at various community events, giving out free information on prostate cancer. Our meetings are open to all members of the public and we vigorously encourage wives or partners to attend as well. The group is well supported by St John of God Hospital who supply a venue as well as catering for all meetings.
