Message from prostate cancer group

Llanblogger has received the following notification from Llangollen Prostate Cancer Support Group:

You will have seen a great deal of publicity recently about how more men die now from Prostate Cancer than women with Breast Cancer.

The funding for research into Prostate Cancer is way below that spent on Breast Cancer. It is often very difficult when someone has just been diagnosed with the disease and sometime one can feel terribly alone and not knowing where to turn for advice or information.

I thought this would be a good time to remind residents in the Llangollen area (but not exclusively) that there is a Prostate Cancer Support Group in Llangollen which has been established for about six years and with a membership of 25 all of whom have been through various stages of cancer.

Meetings take place monthly to support each other, to share experiences, to listen to expert opinion from consultants, nurses, equipment providers and pharmacists.

The Group is on a range of national websites, has funding from several organisations, contributes to courses and to research, and develops its own publicity and display materials. The Group meets at the Hand Hotel at 2.00pm on the third Wednesday of the month and are very friendly and informal.

Anyone who has been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer or indeed any benign Prostate problems is very welcome to attend. If anyone would like any further information about the Group then please contact:
