Time to help men
I watched the coverage and success of the Jane McGrath Foundation Pink Day and the Prime Minister’s donation of $27 million to assist it in providing a further 27 specialist nurses to help women to manage and recover from their disease.
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and underwent a radical prostatectomy. Three years later (the cancer) returned and I received five weeks of radiation. Four years later it was in my left breast and I was given two weeks radiation.
Following that I became quite ill and it took 12 months to recover. In all that time I never received any help, advice, counselling or assistance to manage my problems.
It’s time men also received similar coverage to manage their associated problems with prostate cancer. In the end, my problems cost me my marriage of 23 years.
