A FRIENDLY shoulder is now available for those devastated by cancer.

The Blackpool Prostate Cancer Support Group is inviting men in the area diagnosed with the condition to join its next monthly meeting on Tuesday, at Palatine Leisure Club, in Blackpool, between 2pm and 4pm.

Helen Bright, uro-oncology clinical nurse specialist at Blackpool Teaching Hospital NHS Trust, said the group was for anyone who required information or support about the disease.

She added: “We’ve had a couple of meetings and the response has been extremely positive. We want people to know there is support out there and somewhere you can go to discuss any issues you, or your family, may have about the condition.”

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month at Blackpool Victoria Hospital, at 2pm. For more details (01253) 303225.
