Prostate Cancer is one of the worst Cancers that kill men or dramatically affect their lives. There are around 4,000 men in the North-Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne that are living with a Prostate Cancer diagnosis and there are about 325 men a year diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in these Suburbs. With almost two years of Covid Lockdowns in Melbourne there will be many men now seeing their doctor for the first time and hearing the news about a possible Prostate Cancer diagnosis. Its fortunate that there is a Prostate Cancer Information and Support Group that meets in Eltham monthly. This Group has been serving men and their families in the area for almost 20 years. Check out its website at www.epcisg.org along with a resource video at youtu.be/neo8k44ct0g that explains the benefits of attending a meeting. Meetings are held monthly in the CFA Community Hub at 909 Main Road Eltham and its next meeting will be on Monday 21st February at 7pm.
