The Timaru Prostate Foundation support group visited us during the week and gave a presentation to our members about the importance of being aware of prostate cancer. What checks we can get, when to get them and, if we’re one of the 3000 men in New Zealand unlucky to get the disease, what the treatments are and where we can find help and support. An altogether sobering subject delivered with knowledge and experience from survivors of this dreadful disease.
In return we presented them with $780 which we’ve raised throughout the year from our Saturday morning “bacon butty” smoko breaks. We’re grateful to the lovely people at the Timaru Courier newspaper who sent along Helen and Natasha to report on and photograph this important event. This is the link to their article
