For Men Living with Prostate Cancer.
This group has been established with the aim to improve the lives of men living with prostate cancer and their loved ones. We had our first meeting in February 2021 and have established a small friendly group. We are here to support and educate each other.
We are very grateful to Uniting Care for providing us with an excellent venue to meet. There is a kitchen for tea and coffee, a barbeque for the summer and all the usual amenities.
The group is facilitated by both Kate Butler and Ruben Hillier.
- Kate is the Accredited Exercise Physiologist from Uniting Home and Community Care Far West. Kate can be contacted via Uniting Far West on 08 8084 4600
- Ruben Hillier is the Far West Local Health District Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurse. Ruben can be contacted on 08 8080 2272
During our first meeting we drafted a group agreement. We are always open to improving it or amending it. This is what we came up with:
One person to talk at a time.
Talkative people to be mindful of allowing quieter people a chance to speak.
Whether we agree or not, we respect each other's opinions.
We do not share each other's stories outside of the group.
Members have the right to silence.
We share our stories to help one another and ourselves.
We welcome presenters who are kind enough to share their knowledge with us.
We welcome new members.
We want everyone to be able to contribute.
An informal group for men living with prostate cancer. Come along and meet others who have a similar experience. Partners welcome.
