The Parish Nursing Ministry held their 3rd Men’s Breakfast on Saturday March 5th 2016.

The event was successful and the feedback from all the 28 men in attendance was very positive.

Following a hearty breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, oatmeal bake and fresh fruit, everyone listened to personal stories and informative accounts of receiving the diagnosis of Prostate Cancer. The presentations given by Ian Mitchell and Art Battiste covered the need for early diagnosis, some of the treatments options available and the importance of Spiritual Community.

Ian is a parishioner at St.Philip Neri Parish and a retired teacher who firmly believes in education and wants to educate as many people as possible about Prostate Cancer.

Art is a Prostate cancer survivor and speaks at various events about the disease and the Prostate Cancer support group.

Their advice is to not be afraid to talk about it, get checked out, it's not just an old man issue, it's not a death sentence, and to include a support system. For more info about this event or about contacting the speakers, contact Ethna or Deb (Parish Nurses).
