    They say March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers, or perhaps it was just my Granny who said that.

    It will also bring St Patricks day, (mind the snakes) and Easter. A busy month.
    However amongst other things, March also brings our Kendal meeting on Friday the 1st of March, which also happens to be the first Friday in March. For those who dont know, We meet in the CancerCare Building on Blackhall Road, Kendal from 10am until Noon, A chat, A brew and a biscuit or two.

Twitter to Mastodon

It seems that Twitter have stopped allowing us to embed our feed.

We are still on twitter, For the time being. 

But we post on Mastodon here. 

Our group was formed by prostate cancer sufferers not medical professionals in response to the need for support by patients, wives, partners and friends.  That was in 2003 and we have given that support in many forms ever since.

We’re all very shocked when we get the initial diagnosis but meeting members of our group will help you to realise that we all have a positive outlook and lead a full life.  In addition, you will find in our group, members in various stages and varieties of treatment who are prepared to share their experiences.  Many joining us find it helpful to hear these experiences (in private if necessary) to ease their concerns about their own treatment plans.

Presentation s 300x225

We hold regular meetings in Lancaster and Kendal to keep members informed about prostate cancer, its treatment, research projects and related matters with speakers who are highly experienced and knowledgeable medical professionals.  We also have speakers on topics of general interest.  You will have the chance to speak to all of these presenters

Come along to our meetings to find out more for yourself and feel free to bring your wife, partner or friend.  You’re all welcome, but until you join us, read more of our website for a variety of useful information about us, prostate cancer and related matters as well as associated organisations.

We are one group but meet in two venues, So you will see references to the SOUTH LAKES group,
That is our Kendal meeting, It tends to run as a drop in, You are welcome to walk in to either location,
Doesnt matter if you live in Morecambe or Ambleside. Actually, we really dont care where you are from, Just walk in and say Hi. .
