Admin Posted April 2, 2017 Share Posted April 2, 2017 As you probably know, we have been campaigning to have the advanced prostate cancer treatment Xofigo (Radium-223) made available under Medicare for Australian men. As part of this, this week our Convenor, Jim Marshall (JimJimJimJim), will speak on this at events in Biloela and Nowra. Hosts in Biloela will be Ken O'Dowd MP, Member for Flynn, Qld and Biloela Mens Shed. Hosts in Nowra will be Ann Sudmalis MP, Member for Gilmore, NSW and the Bomaderry Advanced Prostate Men’s Group. Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) CEO, Anthony Lowe, will also speak, and local media will be invited to interview the speakers after the event. Other people involved in organising these events include: Geoff Lester-PCFA Ambassador Gladstone Rockhampton Prostate Cancer Support Group Judy Cornick- Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurse Rockhampton Lloyd Younger- PCFA Ambassador Rockhampton Leigh Bowman -Shoalhaven Prostate Cancer Support Group Evan Kallipolitis, PCFA Community Engagement On this journey, Jim will stop at Gladstone on the nights of Tuesday 4 April 2017 and Wednesday 5 April, and in Sydney on the nights of Thursday 6 April 2017 and Friday 7 April 2017. If you would like to meet Jim and have a chat in Gladstone or in Woolloomooloo, just reply to this email. Jim would also like to meet anyone who can make it to the Biloela or Nowra events, but pressure of the event timetables mean long chats are unlikely on event days.

Jim's travel plans above may also be affected by the aftermath of Debbie. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
