VICTORIAN MEMBER - GET TOGETHER Please note this meeting has been postponed indefinitely: It is great to put faces to names at our local catch-up meetings. We are well overdue for a Face to a Name Meeting for Victorian members! It was great to see 14 or so members at our last catch-up including a few new faces. So our next get together will be held at Glenroy RSL on Saturday 21st March at 11.30 for 12.00 pm lunch. The RSL is located at 186 Glenroy Road, Glenroy. Members and partners from anywhere in world visiting Melbourne are welcome to attend. We will as in the past meet in the reception area around 11.30 and then move into the bistro at 12.00 where they have quite a good array of food and an extensive Seniors menu all at reasonable prices. These meetings are simply a chat over a bite to eat for members and their partners and carers to share thoughts and ideas relating to treatment medication and support. The Glenroy RSL was initially chosen because of its central location. It is readily accessed from the Hume Highway and the M80 - Metropolitan Ring Road with free parking available on site and we have always found the staff to be friendly and cooperative. Please note this date in your Diary now "21 March 2020" and please don't forget to reply and let us know if you are coming - so we can estimate numbers for the bistro. You can reply in this forum or email Steve at email@example.com Alan, Barry and Steve
The Melbourne put a face to a name is being held on the afternoon of Saturday, February 24th 2018 at the Glenroy RSL at 12.00pm. If you haven't already booked - "Please book now"- PARTNERS ARE WELCOME. This get-together provides members in Victoria with an excellent opportunity to meet our illustrious Convenor - Jim Marshall - and another of our senior executive committee members from Queensland - Neville Black - they are coming to Melbourne especially for this get-together and are looking forward to catching up with members, particularly some of our newer ones. Jim and Neville both regularly attend the Prostate Cancer Research Institute (PCRI) annual Patient Conference in Los Angeles. This conference is geared specifically towards patients, and they are both very conversant with the latest treatments that were discussed by the experts at the last conference in October 2017. The Glenroy RSL has a reasonably priced Bistro(with a seniors menu) and is a good spot to meet, have a bite to eat and a leisurely chat with some of the members that we talk with during our monthly phone forums. Jim and his committee are the link between advanced prostate cancer sufferers, the medical fraternity and Government. The recent addition of treatments like Xofigo /Radium 223 (which some of us advanced cancer sufferers might need in the near future) might never have become available on the PBS if it had not been for the efforts of Jim and his team. It’s in your own interest to support the JimJimJimJim group. If you can make it, please come along and meet your mates.
