JimJimJimJim Posted April 20, 2013 Share Posted April 20, 2013 Jim Marshall (not a doctor) said ... It is a fact that the survival statistics for men with prostate cancer in rural and regional Australia are worse than those in the cities. The causes are complex. But one problem is that men in these areas are not able to travel from home to regular treatment like men in the cities are. And a typical prostate cancer treatment is radiotherapy (x-rays) every week day for 7 weeks. The Queensland Cancer Council is working to make this less of a problem by providing accommodation for rural and regional people so they have a place to stay while they get their treatment in the cities. This video is from the ABC news about the sixth such accommodation facility to be provided through the work of the Cancer Council, which will take its first clients in May 2013.
