A recent article published in The Carlow Nationalist Newspaper and on The Irish Cancer Society’s Website about the Éist Centre’s Prostate Cancer Survivors Programme.
Nick, Liam and Patrick all have 2 things in common: they are all prostate cancer survivors and they all found support at the Éist Cancer Support Centre Carlow thanks to funds raised through the Irish Cancer Society and Movember Foundation Ireland.
Éist is one of a number of cancer support services affiliated to the Irish Cancer Society that run a Prostate Cancer Psychosocial Education Programme, funded by Movember. The programme brings together men in an honest, open environment and provides a support system and forum where medical information, guidance and advice can be shared around men’s prostate cancer journeys.
“You need to be able to talk to someone or else you’ll go nuts,” said 47-year-old Nick, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in January 2013.
“Anyone who came in here (to Éist) made the step to come and they never regret it. We talk about everything here and, really, who I feel sorry for are the men who haven’t come in here, who are sitting at home in silence and don’t have anyone to talk to.”
