Cancer Action Group S.A. Inc -
The Group was formed in 1997 with activities centred on a series of information sessions to increase community awareness of prostate cancer and the availability of support groups and resources. Initially these sessions involved education programs in the Metropolitan area plus regular speaking engagements to community based groups and medical meetings.
From 2001 our Group, with the assistance of medical and allied health professionals, has been conducting presentations mainly in key rural areas. The aim of these meetings is to provide information about the disease and its treatments and reassure men and their families that support is available
