Each month we have a meeting where those affected by Prostate Cancer can get together to share experiences, ask questions and receive advice.
We often have an expert speaker who will give a talk on a relevant subject.
This is followed by an opportunity for socialising and to ask questions relating to prostate cancer. This might be in a group discussion or informally, one-to-one .
A Clinical Nurse Specialist often attends our meetings so that medical questions can be answered by a professional.
Our monthly meetings are held in the Cheltenham Maggie's Centre. The Centre is close to the Oncology Unit of Cheltenham Hospital, near to the Fire Station.
Can't make our Monday meetings - why not come to PCP - the Prostate Cancer Partners' meetings instead?
PCP is for anyone affected by prostate cancer. It is usually held at the Table Table restaurant at the Oakwood pub, Twigworth, where two tables are booked in the restaurant - one for men and one for women, with privacy for both groups. As this is a drop-in meeting, there is no need to book in advance. This is a Brewer's Fayre restaurant with a good selection of reasonably priced food and drinks available. Meetings start at 7pm and finish by 9pm. Occasionally, a meeting is held at a different venue - particularly at New Year - so it is advisable to confirm with Val where the meeting will be. Val can be contacted on 07703 477391 or email email@example.com .
We welcome our dietician friend, Jo Payne, who has returned to talk to us again about how to eat healthily - and tastily too!
We would value your presence and support to elect old and new members as Trustees and Committee members and look for a new Secretary, Treasurer, Publicity Officer and Website Administrator - training given! Don't be shy at stepping forward or encouraging someone you think might fit the bill! Usual friendly tea and chat after the short formalities.
This month our speaker will be Personal Fitness Trainer, Gordon Best who some of you may have already met at Maggies. No plimsoles required...
Please visit our new Treatments page which features an introduction to SpaceOAR Hydrogel, as mentioned by John Copsey in a recent Maggie's meeting.
