Free local support for men diagnosed with prostate cancer
A cancer diagnosis and the amount of information to digest can be extremely confronting. For men diagnosed with prostate cancer, talking to a prostate cancer specialist nurse can help.
Introducing Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurse Yvonne Singaraju.
Yvonne is an experienced registered nurse who has received additional training in prostate cancer care. Her role is to:
- provide reliable information and education about the diagnosis, treatment plan and effects of treatment;
- assist patients to access further help to deal with specific problems, e.g., continence and sexual health;
- coordinate care and act as an ongoing point of contact;
- provide access to a wonderful support group of local men also dealing with prostate cancer.
This service is free of charge for men who are newly diagnosed, their loved ones, and prostate cancer survivors. Yvonne is based at Icon Cancer Centre Midland and can be contacted directly – a referral, although welcome, is not necessary.
