Support group call

Sir, – They have one in York. Middlesborough has one and they have a big one in Leeds. Harrogate has one, but in Wensleydale there is nothing.
What am I writing about? Well, I will tell you. It is about Prostate Cancer Support. In this country there are around 250,000 men living with this disease and each year 37,000 are diagnosed with the disease and 10,000 die.
It is the most common cancer found in men. Roughly half of men diagnosed with the disease have a slow-growing cancer, but the others have cancer that is more aggressive or high risk. It is this group of men and their partners who I believe could find solace in a Wensleydale Prostate Cancer Support Group.
I hope that you will join me in setting up such a group in Leyburn to meet once a month.
Please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org PETER NEALE Wensleydale.
