Apologies: Norman, Jim and Kath, and Geoff.

 

A big welcome to our new members, Peter and David.

 

Our first meeting for 2004 started with an enthusiastic chat that I am sure made Peter and David feel welcome.

 

Members talked about some of the experiences that made them feel happy since we last met in December, and, as is the nature of things, there will always be an event that brings sadness.

Members also took the opportunity to update us on their own progress and I drew strength from listening to what they had to say, we are definitely not alone in our own

experiences, yet how many people try to battle on relying on their own strength.

 

There was some very positive thinking evident and it was a tremendously uplifting experience to sit back and listen to so many positive thinkers, everyone was very realistic about their own situation and very understanding toward others.

 

It is very encouraging to see the VISION of our Support Group being put into practice. This is a positive foundation for us to build on, and with a willingness to work together, we can only go from strength to strength.

THE VISION OF OUR GROUP IS TO BRING TOGETHER MEN WHO HAVE PROSTATE CANCER, PLUS THEIR WIVES / PARTNERS AND FAMILIES, TOGIVE SUPPORT, BASED ON OUR OWN EXPERIENCES.

 

 

We also watched the Video that Doctor Elder loaned us when he was Guest Speaker at our first meeting.                                       Next page
