Isle of Wight Prostate Cancer Support Group
This Island-based group was started in 2011 by fellow travellers to the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham for radiotherapy treatment. 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. The word Cancer sends shivers down most spines. Such is its intimidating nature, even with the advances medical science has made in successfully dealing with it; it still retains the fear factor. So having people around who are empathic and able to offer real support can be critical. Usually it is one’s partner and family who provide this; however they too may need support and consideration, which can so easily be overlooked. The present day group is very active in providing support, psa testing events and guidance to the newly diagnosed though out the Island.
