Can­cer Sup­port Group helps Jono

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

SPEAK­ING from per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence and man­ag­ing his own battle with can­cer, Raw Earth Food owner John Wolfe (Jono) has come to re­alise the need for health sup­port in the re­gion.

“There are many peo­ple strug­gling to cope on their own with their ill­ness,” Mr Wolfe said.

Jono has re­cently un­der­gone more tests and treat­ments into his own battle with can­cer and is look­ing at help­ing oth­ers in his sit­u­a­tion.

Jono, his staff and cus­tomers are work­ing to­gether to start up a can­cer sup­port group in Childers.

“Our in­ten­tion is to hold meet­ings ev­ery sec­ond Tues­day from 5pm, we want to cre­ate a friendly, homely en­vi­ron­ment,” he said.

Jono un­der­stands the im­por­tance of hav­ing a healthy diet and plans on hold­ing juic­ing and veg­e­tar­ian food pre­sen­ta­tions for those who choose to make healthy changes.

“Ev­ery­one will have the op­por­tu­nity to min­gle, chat and ex­change in­for­ma­tion in a re­lax at­mos­phere,” Jono said.

“Many of us get caught up in our own health is­sues and we don’t re­alise how much of a pos­i­tive ef­fect we can have on one an­other. Sup­port­ing one an­other can be a sim­ple as lis­ten­ing to some­one or hav­ing some­one to talk too. Maybe you have great ideas or price­less in­for­ma­tion to share.”

If you can ad­vise the group on strate­gies or for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion phone Jono on 0427 960 073 or feel free to visit the shop, 94 Churchill St, Childers.
