A new support group offering help and advice to men diagnosed with prostate cancer will hold its first meeting this month (23).
The Urology Nurse Team from Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust have joined forces with The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre in Crawley to set up the group with the backing of Prostate Cancer UK.
The health specialists who work at East Surrey and Crawley Hospitals hope to support people diagnosed with prostate cancer as well as their partners, who are also welcome to come along. The meetings will give people the opportunity to meet others who are going through a similar experience and have similar concerns.
The group will meet at The Olive Tree at Crawley Hospital on the fourth Thursday of each month from 6.30pm-8.30pm – the first meeting is on the 23rd January. This meeting will also include a talk from Dave Brice, K2 Gym Active Life Coordinator, on the benefits of exercise and cancer.
If you would like to find out more or come along please contact Leanne Tookey, Macmillan Support Worker, on 01737 768511 ext 1789 or The Olive Tree on 01293 534465.
