The Bundaberg group was formed in November 2000 and has been functioning continuously since that date. Meetings are held at the Family Centre in the Bundaberg Showgrounds on the 4th Thursday of each month. Morning tea is available from 9.00am with the meeting commencing at 10.00am. The average attendance at meetings is between 50 to 60. The group is dedicated to promoting awareness of Prostate Cancer and the need for early diagnosis. They offer support and understanding to newly diagnosed men as well as men receiving treatment or who have undergone treatment for this disease.
New members are invited to introduce themselves and advise how they are coping with their diagnosis and what treatment they may have decided on or have had. Emphasis is also placed on making sure wives or partners of new members feel comfortable within the group and are encouraged to discuss any problem they may encounter, either with other ladies or the group as a whole.
A call to your local Prostate Cancer Support Group or attendance at a Support Group Meeting will put you in touch with men who have personally experienced the various treatments available.
