A week highlighting the services available to those affected by prostate cancer.

From Monday 10th to Friday 14th October, Macmillan Jersey will be hosting seminars, talks and workshops with healthcare professionals - to allow islanders to find out more about prostate cancer, and the support services available to them.

These events are not just for those living with prostate cancer - but family, friends and colleagues, anyone impacted by a diagnosis.

On Monday the 10th of September we have an awareness stand at Waitrose in St. Brelade from 10am to 2pm, where you can talk to those who have been affected by prostate cancer - and find out how you can support anyone living with cancer here in Jersey.

Tuesday the 11th join us from 12.30pm to 2pm at The Members Room at Societe-Jersiase, (Pier Road) as we have a seminar that will give anyone wanting to know about prostate cancer support that is available to them a better understanding, with guest Ben Hughes - Jersey's consultant urologist.
